Shortage of Sugar Paves way for Zambian sugar


Illegally imported Zambian-White and Brown Sugar has finally found its way in Malawi’s markets with thanks to shortage of sugar in the country besides having two sugar manufacturing Companies-Salima Sugar and Illovo Sugar.

Even though the Zambian Sugar is in most of the markets across the country, its price K3,200 as sold in Lilongwe and surrounding areas is not cheaper as expected but a little bit better than Malawi sugar which is k4,000 per packet of one Kilogram.

Sugar shortage in Malawi has resulted to the commodity to become exorbitant and is beyond the reach of the poor who already are struggling to buy a pale of maize flour at K3,600 in Mgona township and surrounding areas in Lilongwe.
