ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN — The Pakistan Flour Mills Association (PFMA) is warning of a flour crisis in the country if the government doesn’t stop impounding cars carrying bags of wheat, according to the Business Recorder.
The association has written letters to the chief minister highlighting the possible crisis and asking for a meeting. It has threatened to stop supplying flour to the market.
PFMA said the food department confiscated the cars carrying wheat in order to meet its procurement target set by the government.
The food department has responded by saying warnings of a flour crisis is propaganda and said it would ensure the supply of flour at all costs. Government officials said allegations by the PFMA are baseless.
