Malawi Fruits is a Scottish charity with a focus on sustainable economic development and uses social enterprise models as a means of initiating and operating commercial operations in crop growing and processing in Northern Malawi. All operations are on a not-for-profit basis.
Malawi Fruits has until now provided start up finance, training and support to local farmers and community enterprises to enable them to secure their futures. For farmers this means to provide them with a household income which can then be used for school fees, health care, etc.; for community businesses this means enabling them to be profitable with the clear agreement that all profits will be invested in further community enterprise, orphan care programmes or other charitable ventures.
