Largest agricultural farm in Zambia wants to duplicate project in Moxico

The largest agricultural farm in Zambia, the Mutanda farm, could be installed in the province of Moxico. The intention was expressed by Jonh Webber, general director of the farm, who informed that the intentions include replicating the construction of the project on Angolan soil, more specifically in Moxico.

As part of a visit by the governor of Moxico, Ernesto Muangala, to the farm, Jonh Webber told the governor that he was "ready and available" to go to Moxico and check "in loco" the current conditions, as well as the viability of the project.

According to Angop, the general director of the farm – which is located north of Solwezi, in Zambia, and has approximately 15 thousand employees, some of whom are Angolan – intends to bring all the experience he has to Angola and contribute to the transformation of the farm in the most productive in the country.

The official also reiterated that he intends to conduct this experience in the province of Moxico, after being informed by the governor about the ease of the tax legislative package, which ends up exempting a set of taxes and protecting private investment, both national and foreign, writes the Angop.

In terms of annual production, the aforementioned agricultural and livestock project, whose development took place over a decade, presents satisfactory figures. According to Angop, the initiative is producing 32 thousand tons of grains, 70 thousand tons of finished products, as well as 85 million eggs per year, on 530 hectares irrigated by central pivot and with 300 hectares still to be explored.

The person responsible, after creating the Mutanda Farms farm, in 2013, promoted other branches, such as Kalumbila Farm. Furthermore, in 2019, the Mutanda Farms group – with an investment of more than 1.5 billion dollars – moved forward with the creation of the second subsidiary, Kalilo Farm.

However, the creation of subsidiaries does not stop there. The project has others under development, such as one dedicated to livestock production. This production, which began in 2021, generates animals that are adjustable to each territory and climate. According to Angop, the Mutanda Farms farm is breeding the Boran breed, but there is still a Limousin Stud, with the belief that there is a possibility of breeding it in Moxico.

According to the farm's general director, the products are already sold in Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Africa, markets that Angola is expected to join.

In turn, the governor of Moxico expressed interest in Zambian investment. Quoted by Angop, Ernesto Muangala said that Zambian businesspeople have "open doors" to invest in Angola, and, mainly, in Moxico.
