Mzuzu coffee resumes production, nets $700,000 in exports

Mzuzu Coffee has resumed coffee production for the local market after several months.

Speaking during a press briefing at their Luwinga Headquarters in Mzuzu, the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mackson Ng’ambi, said, despite the absence of the brand on the local shelves, the company distributed green beans to Europe and other African countries, generating $700,000 in the 2023/2024 season.

‘We have rectified all the challenges we were facing in the past and this time around, we have come to stay, ” He said.

N’gambi further said the company is working with over 2,000 smallholder farmers in six cooperatives in the northern and central regions of the coubtry.

According to N’gambi, the company aims to produce 300 metric tons of green beans during the 2024-2025 growing season.

Mzuzu Coffee exports 75 percent of its coffee as green beans but plans to shift towards exporting a finished product to boost earnings.
