The Act also requires BAMB to cover its operating costs from revenue generated from its trading activities.

Powers of BAMB - conferred by the Act:

  • Purchase or obtain supplies from any source
  • Fix prices for purchase or sale of produce
  • Import or export any scheduled produce
  • Arrange for transport, storage, processing and sale of scheduled produce
  • Enter into any transaction which, in the Board’s opinion, will facilitate proper discharge of its functions
