The Syndicate of Bread Manufacturers in Lebanon, Antoine Seif, explained that the cause of the crisis was the cessation of mills during Eid Al-Adha without securing sufficient wheat stocks for bakeries.
Seif said in an interview with Voice of Lebanon radio: “The stock of wheat is insufficient, and some mills have enough stock for a week, while others are sufficient for days. The bakeries do not operate at full production due to the lack of sufficient flour to produce bread.”
He assured that the Economy & Trade Minister promised the syndicate that more quantities will be shipped.
Noting that the shipment will still need to “be subjected to laboratory analyzes.”
