Ngabaghila Chatata | FOUNDER OF Thanthwe Farms
Thanthwe Enterprises, registered in 2013, is an innovative Agribusiness venture that operate in the horticulture value chain and specialize in Agro-processing, Business Incubation and Climate smart technology manufacturing and supply. It was born out of a passion to see Malawi growing and processing its own food and exporting to international market including South Africa, East Africa, Europe and USA. We work with a network of 5,400 smallholder farmers across Malawi, facilitating their access to markets and contributing to improving their livelihoods.
We started the company because we wanted to see a Malawi that can feed itself and its neighbors. We observed that there was not much being done to create wealth, thus we wanted to contribute to wealth creation through farming and packaging Malawi agriproducts. We want to inspire our nation that if we can do it, everybody can. We envision a Malawi that thrives on the production and export of high-quality agricultural products
“The Taste of Malawian foods is yet experience, we have positioned ourselves to facilitate access to markets for Malawian products while enabling the farmers we work with get value from it. ”
