Malawi Mzuzu AA Co-operative
Mzuzu Cooperative Union members are located in the Northern highlands of Malawi and almost 80% of the coffee is grown on terraces by smallholder farmers. There are 3,000 members, of which 25% are women and have been growing coffee since the early 1930s. The Union was formed in 2007, and prior to this was operated by the Government as a Smallholder Coffee Authority.
The union comprises of six cooperatives: Misuku hill bordering Tanzania where over 50% of their coffee is produced at altitudes of 1700 to 2000 masl. Phoka Hills (attitude 1300 -2500), Viphya hills (1200 – 1500m), Nkhata Bay highlands overlooking Lake Malawi (altitude 1000 -2000m), South East Mzimba on the south of Viphya plateau (altitude 1200 to 1700m) and Ntchisi East (altitude of 1200-1800m).
Mzuzu’s aim is that every smallholder farmer has good accommodation (iron roof, cement floor, plastered, adequate ventilation), three meals a day, adequate warm clothing, a warm home and are able to send their children to school.
