Zambian company imports fertiliser for regional market

Zambian distribution company Nyiombo Investments Limited plans to supply over 200,000 tonnes of fertiliser to four countries in the Southern Africa region through government arrangement and on the open market.

Nyiombo sources the fertiliser from Saudi Arabia and the Ukraine and intends to sell it in Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia.

Company official Mr.
Martin Chaikatisha said Nyiombo had been offered a contract by Zambia's Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives to supply 40,000 tonnes of fertiliser for the Fertiliser Support Programme (FSP). Out of the 100,000 tonnes it will supply to the Zambian market, 60,000 tonnes would be sold on an open market at a competitive price.

He said the company had a similar arrangement with the Malawian government to supply 45,000 tonnes. Mozambique and Tanzania are expected to receive 50,000 and 20,000 tonnes respectively.
