A great way to support farmers, entrepreneurs and small businesses in Malawi is to buy ethically produced, fairly traded Malawian products here in Scotland.
This supports the creation and sustainability of livelihoods for people right across the supply chain, from small holder farmers in rural Malawi to your local fair trade retailers in Scotland. Not only that but you can now get some fantastic Malawian products in Scotland, for example Kilombero rice and Mzuzu coffee...
As part of our efforts to help support trade with Malawi the Scotland Malawi Partnership is delighted to work in partnership with Malawian owned, UK based business Africanos World to bring the world famous Malawi Gin to Scotland. In celebration of this we are excited to bring you an exclusive offer for SMP members.

Little known outside East Africa, where it is very popular, Kilombero rice is uniquely tasting and highly versatile rice whose ability to absorb flavours from vegetables, fish, and meat makes it ideally suited for risotto. Did you know that 90kg represents the amount of rice sold that would enable a Malawian farmer to pay for a year’s basic secondary education for one child!
With altitude, climate and weather conditions ideal for cultivating quality coffee Mzuzu is fast growing a reputation as one of the best coffee growing regions in the world. In the 2014/15 Malawi Taste of Harvest coffee competition, Mzuzu took the top five positions. Did you know that the first coffee plant in Malawi was introduced in the 1870s by Scottish settlers and originated from the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh!
So why not make the change to 'buy Malawian' to bring a taste of Africa to your home and support sustainable economic development in one of the poorest countries in the world at the same time.
