Hopes raised over Malawi’s prices

| April 19, 2016

Malawi’s Tobacco Control Commission (TCC) has said that it is confident that problems that marred the opening of the country’s tobacco sales were generally overcome during a recent meeting of representatives of buyers and farmers, according to a story by Owen Khamula for the Nyasa Times.

The TCC’s CEO Albert Changaya said that most of the challenges that had haunted leaf sales had been drastically reduced.

He said the meeting had discussed issues to do with prices and rejection levels, and that buyers had promised to improve the situation.

On Friday, the Kanengo auction floors in Lilongwe were suspended while farmers at Chinkhoma protested angrily at the prices on offer and at the rejection rates.
