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.

Exagris Africa Limited partnered with the Millennium Villages Projects (MVP) to lead a National Field Day at one of its farms in the northern part of Malawi on the 15th of April 2015. This took place at Engucwini Extension Planning Area (EPA) which is in the catchment of Exagris’ Katonthowolo farm in Mzimba North. Over 300 people attended the event which is aimed at enhancing learning among smallholder farmers. The Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development, Honourable Dr Allan Chiyembekeza was the Guest of Honour. The field day was carried out under the theme “Beyond Demos.”
Exagris Africa believes in looking after the whole person and caring for the wellbeing of the people living in the communities surrounding our farms that’s why it partners with DIPD to help with the people that have various degrees of disabilities.
