World class, vibrant and confident agribusiness in Malawi
To be leaders in sustainable and innovative agriculture in Malawi and provide opportunities for farming communities.
Excellence, Growth, Innovation, Umunthu.
Established in 2008, we are one of the largest cropping & livestock businesses in Malawi. We are committed to the development of a multi-generational business that makes a meaningful difference to people we work with & the environment.
We farm around 7,000 ha on 14 estates, of which approximately 3,000 ha are arable; around 400ha are under irrigation. We specialise in seed production, export crops & agro-processing. Our farms also supply the domestic market. On non arable land we have tree planting programmes and livestock. We have a dynamic out-grower programme focusing on paprika, chillies and groundnuts. This involves around 15,000 smallholders from all three regions across Malawi.
We have invested in a peanut processing and export business called AfriNut. We also have a shareholding in Valid Nutrition; this further strengthens our presence in the groundnut value chain. We have a joint venture with Funwe Farming Company; this enables us to be at the forefront of the seed industry.
We facilitate substantial community development activities, through a dedicated Development Services team. This is focused on improving food security and small scale agribusiness. We are responsible for over US$2million funding from reinvested profits, donor and private sources.
We currently have over 650 full time people in our team; in addition, between 1,500 and 4,000 seasonal workers. Safety of our team is always important. In agricultural terms Exagris is still a relatively youthful business that has grown quickly. Current investment priorities include consolidating and increasing the efficiency of our existing business, expanding irrigation and the training and development of our staff.
