“When in operational the plant will be producing a capacity of 50metric tonnes per day benefiting a lot of smallholder farmers in the district,” he said.
The plant will also contribute to the country’s economic aspirations, he said.
Chidzungu added that despite dry spell facing the district, the Authority has a flagship Nthola Ilolla project, with 500 hectares for irrigation which if put into use can produce a lot of rice.
He further said fields which are on irrigation will harvest their rice than those on rain-fed.
A rice farmer expecting to benefit from the factory, Margret Royora, said she expects to see her farm produce getting value addition and selling at better prices.

“Right now we are making profit, but after the opening of the factory the proceeds are going to be more as the produce will be polished, packaged and branded, thereby allowing us to sell at better prices,” she said.

Almost 2,500 rice famers will benefit from the factory.
