The body utilised the ongoing sensitization stakeholder engagements held with maize millers under Operation Wealth Creation, Rubaga Grain Millers Association, Masanafu maize millers, and on-site capacity building visits to all millers across the country, where it issued an ultimatum of six months (January – June 2021) to have all maize flour milling facilities certified by UNBS.

In a statement, they noted that UNBS use of the Distinctive Mark regulation 2018 requires all products under mandatory standards, of which maize flour is among, to be certified by UNBS before being placed on the market. They added,

“Violation of this regulation attracts a fine not exceeding five hundred currency points (500) or imprisonment not exceeding five years or both,” the body noted.
