Malawi consumers baffled by Frozy test deal: Mozambique drink

Consumers Association of Malawi (Cama) has lashed out at the Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) and has since asked for an investigation on a drink test deal.

Frozy banned on Malawi market

Cama chairman John Kapito wondered why the Malawi Bureau of Standards (MSB) has dispatched its officials to Mozambique to test Frotzy, a drink which MSB banned on Malawi drink shop shelves three months ago.

“Why is it that MSB is giving special treatment to this company? We need an investigation,” he said.

Fumed Kapito: “We are bafled, MSB can never be trusted again!”

MSB banned Frotzy in Malawi because of what it said high acidic levels in the drink.

Devlin Chokazinga, MSB director,  confirmed some officials are in Mozambique to retest the drink at the request of the manufacturers.

He said MSB will be spending K800000 on allowances and accomodation but the money would be refunded by the manufacturers.

Southern Bottlers monopolise the drink industry in Malawi and the coming of Frotzy took the drinks industry by storm.

The problem with SOBO campany they are refusing to change ,at this modern times the world is changing very fast ;that system of selling only water whilst the company clings to the bottle is time consuming ,fronzy you just buy, pay and Go.Thanks to fronzy we didn’t have that nightmare of supplying Only CoKe or Fanta whilst you want to drink Sprite,kkkk your marketing Team should go back to drawing board ,otherwise its a sinking Titanic ,mwabetsa market share ku Frozy,do a research and get what people want ,blavooo!!!
