Zimbaber tobacco sales at 120 million kg

More than 120 million kg of tobacco has been sold so far, surpassing last season's cumulative output, reports The Herald.

After 98 days of sales, tobacco output now stands at 123 147 753kg, marking the second time in eight years that tobacco production has surpassed the 100 million kilogrammes mark.

Last season, 119 813 490 kilogrammes were sold at the close of the auction floors. This season, total sales of 170 million kg are expected.

Tobacco Association of Zimbabwe president, Stan Kasukuwere, said this was a positive development showing improvement of the sector, but lamented the absence of a sound financial support programme for tobacco growers. (18 July 2011)
