ZAMBIAN Breweries Puts Millions to Fuel Zambia’s Cassava Growing Sector

Posted on : 03 Aug, 2017


ZAMBIAN Breweries (ZB) Plc has invested US$ 2.2 million in Luapula Province that will enable 4,000 small- scale farmers engaged to grow cassava. The brewery plans to turn Mansa town into a ‘cassava capital city of Zambia’.


ZAMBIAN Breweries is one of the top buyers of agricultural crops in Zambia – including maize, barley, sorghum and cassava to produce its beers.


Further the brewery has also commissioned a US$33 million malting plant in the Lusaka-South Multi Facility Economic Zone (LS-MFEZ) with an initial production capacity of 15,000 tonnes a year. The plant has boosted the demand for barley from local farmers.


On the R&D front, the brewery has collaborated with Zambia Agriculture Research Institute to develop new varieties for cassava and invest in mechanisation of cassava production with support from Musika.


More about Africa’s cassava plantations at 3rd Cassava World Africa on 10-11 October in Lusaka, ZAMBIA.
