A great way to support farmers, entrepreneurs and small businesses in Malawi is to buy ethically producedfairly traded Malawian products in the UK.

For a complete and regularly updated list of Malawian products available across the UK, please go to this page on the website of the Scotland Malawi Partnership.

Buying Malawian products 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 and Nationwide. Not only that but you can now get some fantastic Malawian products in the UK, for example Kilombero rice and Mzuzu coffee...

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.

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.
