As the country is making efforts towards diversifying agricultural exports, locally produced honey has found a market in Japan.

One of the development partners, GTZ, has already helped some local cooperatives in finding better ways of marketing their products especially under the One Village One Product initiative.

One of the cooperatives is Mapanga Honey of Mulanje, which has been exporting honey to Japan since 2012 in volumes of at least 500kilograms. The grouping consists of at least 86 people.

Speaking to Capital FM, executive member of the group, Joseph Ndakoma ,disclosed that they are expected to send one ton of honey this year, which is an improvement from the past two years where they exported half a ton per year.

Country manager for OVOP, Kamia Kaluma Sulumba, told Capital FM that empowering local cooperatives in large numbers can make significant contributions towards Malawi’s exports.
