KARACHI: Flour from the Pakistan Agricultural Storage and Services Corporation (PASSCO) godowns has started arriving in the city, aimed at overcoming the shortage created in the market.
Sources in the flour mills association have confirmed the move saying that the flour from the PASSCO godowns has reached the city. “Around 20 to 25 trailers are coming to the city from the PASCO-owned storage sites on daily basis,” they said but added that there is no chance of immediate relief for the consumers in terms of lowering of flour prices in the city.
The sources in the market said that each 100-kg wheat bag is sold out in the open market at Rs 5400. “The flour prices will remain high in the city and there are chances of it showing a further upward trajectory,” they said.
