Improving processing and standards to revive Malawi's groundnut export industry.
AgDevCo’s investment, alongside a Dutch grant, is financing a new factory and equipment to improve the processing and handing of locally-grown groundnuts. Afri-Oils will also establish links with farmers and deliver training on aflatoxin control to improve groundnut quality and pricing. Through these initiatives, Afri-Oils aims to demonstrate that Malawi can meet international standards and potentially revive its groundnut export industry, with significant income uplift potential for smallholders.
