“The Sierra Leone National Bakers Union (SLENABU) wishes to inform its membership and the General Public that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the current crisis between Russia and Ukraine there is an acute shortage of Flour across Europe and Africa. As a result there is increment in the price of wheat in the world market and that phenomenon has affected us greatly as a nation,” they stated.

SLENBU noted that they have engaged the Management of the Sierra Leone Flour Mill to make sure that there is availability of flour in the market.

“During the engagement, the Management of the Sierra Leone Flour Mill assured the Sierra Leone National Baker Union that Flour is going to be available throughout this coming Holy Month of Ramadan (Fast Month) and beyond,” the Union stated.
