Encouraging level of tobacco grower registrations in Malawi

| September 18, 2012

Malawi’s Tobacco Control Commission (TCC) has said that the number of tobacco-grower registrations indicated that production would be higher in the coming season than it was in the past season, according to a story in The Maravi Post.

Speaking yesterday, Dr. Bruce Munthali, head of the TCC, said the registration exercise had started on a good note.

He said that some local companies had already placed orders and that competition from international buyers was expected to be keener in the coming season.

The 2011-12 season ended on August 14 with 79 million kg of tobacco having been sold, well short of an earlier TCC estimate of 152 million kg.
