The business

Organic production of crops is slowly growing in Malawi as there is more and more understanding this is more beneficial for environment, the land and profits. This business will grow organic garlic and potatoes under irrigation. In malawi there is a big buyer of organic crops that are exported. At the moment this buyer is still looking for more organic products grown in Malawi. A good way to kick-start this business, while also looking for other markets and other, organically grown, products. The business will start with 2 hectares of garlic and 2 hectares of potatoes and will grow to 8 ha of crops in 5 years, mostly garlic.
