To maintain competition in the maize milling industry, small and medium-scale millers need to counter the imbalance of market power. To do this, maize milling entrepreneurs need to focus on investing in a well-priced maize mill with superior extraction rates.
The rate of extraction is the measure and quality of maize meal produced during the milling process. These rates affect the profitability of your maize milling business. The quality of raw maize, the process of milling and the type of mill you choose will determine your extraction rates and in turn, your profitability.
