TBZ to buy 50,000 kgs of tobacco for independent growers

Independent tobacco growers have finally been assured of a market for their 50,000 kilogrammes of tobacco.

Independent Tobacco Growers Association Chairperson, James Nyirenda has confirmed to Breeze News.

Mr. Nyirenda says that TBZ, Tobacco Board of Zambia has assured the farmers that it will soon buy the produce from farmers in Eastern Province.

He says that TBZ has instructed farmers to ensure that they properly pack their tobacco, which has been stuck due to lack of market.

Mr. Nyirenda expressed happiness that government has attended to their grievances like it did last marketing season when independent growers were also stuck with their cash crop.

Last week, the association appealed to government through the provincial administration to assist them find market for their produce.
