4.6 Libya Storage and Milling Company Contact List


Libya buys in approximately 80% of the 1 million tons of the wheat it consumes annually, purchasing approximately 400 thousand metric tons (TMT) of durum, 350 TMT of bread wheat, and 400 to 800 TMT of flour and semolina per year. Other essential purchases from abroad include rice, corn oil, yeast, sugar, and tea. Responsibility for ensuring that all Libyans have access to a plentiful and affordable supply of basic food items lies with the National Supply Corporation(NASCO), a non profit state-owned government agency. Founded in 1971, NASCO is considered one of the most important achievements of the Libyan revolution. Through its activities in import, storage and distribution, the agency has unified food costs throughout the country, protecting Libyan consumers from fluctuations in international prices and minimizing the burden of inflation.
