Chombe Tea officially attains international standards.

Speaking at a news briefing in Blantyre, Chombe foods General Manager Forbes Muzamhindo said the weight and moisture content of the tea is at par with international standards.

He said accreditation is a springboard to invade international market.

“Our products are equally competitive in terms of quality, content and in terms of value…it is critical to buy a product that has been accredited, you know what is in there, it has been tasted, verified and affirmed, you need a product that has a history, and Chombe(tea) has a history.

“It is coming from a natural production of tea which is processed with high quality machines and we know that what we offer to the nation is free of contamination.” Muzamhindo emphasized.

Apart from the accreditation Chombe Tea has been repackaged.

“If our customers see Chombe (tea) new packaging on the shelves there should not be scared to buy, it is our product that we have developed to international standards.”

Speaking during the award ceremony, Chief Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) Lloyd Muhara challenged Malawian companies to be innovative and aim high.

Muhara said value addition is important if the country is to achieve the desired goal of being predominantly exporters not importers.

The financial controller and GM for Chombe both look foreign. Can’t Malawians do these jobs or the bwana just feels good to be issuing instructions to foreigners?

The Group Financial Controller is an Asian. These guys are good at financial shenanigans. Is this the reason he was hired?
