The consumption and marketing also provides some useful insights.  Consumers tend to
prefer breakfast meal to roller meal.  Roller meal is not very processed (first run) maize
meal, while breakfast meal is highly processed maize meal.  The tastes and preferences for
increased processing are clearly shown in the higher breakfast meal prices.  Also, the size of
the marketing margin and relative cost of the two processed maize meals is a result of the
cost of milling.  It is interesting to note that the margin between the two prices has remained
fairly constant.  Chansa:  why is this?
Actions taken/follow up
:
There is no specific follow up to the understanding that has been generated through the
analysis of these prices.  This information should be remembered when the analyst is
doing future analysis.
