Exagris Africa Limited
Our vision is to create a profitable Agribusiness based on sustainable farming best practise that will benefit employees, shareholders and customers, and thus raise the prosperity of rural communities.
The company's enterprise profile aims to provide resilience to uncertainty in agricultural commodity markets and to provide a proportion of income as forex (foreign currency exchange market) earnings. The farming system employed enhances soil health and reduces exposure to the risks of uncertain weather conditions. Most importantly from a national perspective, the company is leading the way in diversification away from tobacco. Tobacco currently accounts for 80% of Malawi's export earnings, but faces an uncertain future as well as being environmentally damaging due to typical production practices and the need for firewood for curing of flue cured tobacco.
The company considers its tenure of the land it occupies as an opportunity to contribute to conserving and enhancing the natural resource base of the country, which is under severe pressure from population growth and lack of effective policies for land and water conservation. Measures employed, such as water conservation structures, minimum tillage and re-afforestation, are promoted and facilitated with surrounding communities, and with national agricultural extension services.
Our products include crops and livestock and we market Chillis and Paprika direct - please contact us for further information.
“If there are two things that should be remembered in my presentation, one is that Malawi needs to produce and secondly Malawi needs trade – it needs to export,” that was Tim de Borde, CEO for Exagris Africa, a farming giant in Malawi which also co-owns Afrinut, a peanut processing company.
