Inosselia-Greenbelt greenhouse farm exports cherry tomatoes to DRC

Inosselia Agro and Greenbelt Authority (GBA) greenhouse-based vegetable farm, which is near Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe, last week exported its first consignment of 300 kilograms (kgs) of fresh cherry tomatoes to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

The farm, one of the biggest producers of high-quality tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, watermelons, cucumbers, lettuce, and cauliflower in Southern Africa, was established to secure exports and substitute the importation of horticultural produce from South Africa, which made Malawi lose a lot of forex.

This first successful commercial export has effectively sealed a sustainable market in DRC for the farm's proprietors, who will continue exporting the cherry tomatoes to that market every week, with the amount of the produce also increasing every week.
