DETAILS

Mzuzu Coffee Planters Cooperative Union was established in 1999 when the coffee sector was liberalized in Malawi. In 2006 under a large European-Union backed project, the cooperative expanded and built many of its 61 CPUs (Centralized Processing Units/Washing Stations) as well as a centralized dry mill in Mzuzu town for hulling, processing, and export. Mzuzu has dominated the specialty coffee scene in Malawi and is one of the country’s only coffee cooperatives. Mzuzu members have also gone gender-equity training and GALS workshops, and some of the cooperatives offer women-produced coffee.
