Mozambique will soon have eight agricultural processing centers

At least eight processing centers for agricultural products will be created in the near future, in different parts of the country, in what constitutes the first phase of implementation of the National Program to Industrialize Mozambique, launched Friday in Vanduzi, Manica province, by the President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi.

This is an initiative that aims to create conditions to leverage the industrial sector, privileging local raw material, having as base the agricultural potential, fish farming, mineral resources, and infrastructures.

In fact, as part of the materialization of this program, it is planned to establish processing centers in Cuamba (Niassa) for cereals and macadamia nuts; Ribáue (Nampula), for cereals; Namacurra (Zambezia), for rice and oilseeds; and Nhamatanda (Sofala) for cereals.

The processing centers also include Vanduzi, in Manica, for macadamia nuts, fruits, and vegetables; Cumbane, in Inhambane, for fruits, including pineapple from Muxungue; Chókwè, in Gaza, for tomatoes; and Manhiça, Maputo-province, for bananas, meats, and derivatives.

In the same context it is intended to transform the Ancuabe district, in Cabo Delgado, into a poultry production zone; Mongicual, into an essentially fishing area; Mocuba, in Zambézia, industry; Marávia, in Tete, goat cattle; and Manica into a fruit production zone.
