TCC summons tobacco buyers, farmers as Limbe Auctions open

Tobacco Control Commission (TCC) officials are upbeat that differences rocking the sale of tobacco would be history following what they describe as successful the meeting of representatives of buyers and farmers.

TCC chief executive officer Albert Changaya said most of the challenges that haunted the sale of the leaf have been drastically reduced.

“We discussed issues of the prices and rejections. The buyers have promised to improve the situation,” he said.

On Friday, Kanengo Auction Floors in Lilongwe were suspended whilst farmers at Chinkhoma protested angrily because of poor prices and high rejection rate.

The Limbe Auction Floors open on Monday by Agriculture minister George.

Changaya said he expects not much prices trouble at the Limbe floors because much of the tobacco is contract.
