The full meal is available for $ 426 and $ 422 per tonne respectively 50kg bag of type A and B. But the delivery will only be in port. With the cost of transport to warehouse STC, Shri Lal Mahal Ltd. calls for additional $ 24. Even adding $ 24, the price is better than the local producer, Les Moulins de la Concorde. STC account to a 'due deligence' to see if the company will honor its commitments. After the STC will take a decision on awarding the contract.
If the Indian company will provide the country flour, STC will offer Shri Lal Mahal Ltd. a contract of some 50 000 tonnes. And the local company LMLC will be invited to readjust its price relative to that of Shri Lal Mahal Ltd. to provide 50,000 tons to meet our demand for flour. Generally, it was in November that the country launched the tender for the supply of flour. This year the proceedings were launched earlier especially as the price is affordable on the world market. Right now the price of wheat on the world market is in flux. Mauritius consumes an average of 95 000 tonnes to 100 000 tonnes of flour per year and almost 8000 tons per month. We use two types of flour including the type A and type B. Type A is often called the French flour is most commonly used for the production of bread and type B is flour called flour Australia. This type of flour is used to prepare faratas, pastries and pizzas.
