Sunflower and groundnut oil refinery
In Malawi, a cooperative of farmers is earning more from their sunflower and groundnut crops by processing them into cooking oil. The ingredients are carefully checked to ensure premium quality, and the oil is sold locally, with buyers coming from up to 100 km away. Seedcake from the processed groundnuts and sunflower seeds is sold to the livestock feed industry, and the group is also applying for certification from the Malawi Bureau of Standards, in order to be able to export their oil to Tanzania.
