Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) has seized over 50 bags of expired fertilizer from Rab Processors Limited in Blantyre.

 

The fertilizer, suspected to have expired last year, was being repackaged at one of the company’s warehouses in Limbe.

MBS Director General Davlin Chokazinga said the Bureau raided the warehouse after receiving a tip from members of the general public that the company was planning to sell the expired fertilizer.

 “We received a tip that Rab Processors Limited in Limbe have got a huge consignment of fertiliser which expired in October 2016 and some bags in December 2016 and they were re-bagging the fertilizer into new bags, which are labled manufactured this year and expiry 2021.

“We thought that was a joke, but we did send our team to verify the claims and when they came here, they were shocked to find huge quantity of expired fertilizer being put in new bags so that they can put back on the market,” explained Chokazinga.

 

Chokazinga said the Bureau will take action accordingly as it is “matter of life and death”.

“Our economy agro-based and if we start giving our farmers rubbish, and rubbish will come and therefore the agricultural productivity will definitely go down. So, we will take proper action so that this practice is put to stop forthwith,” he added.

He warned other companies doing similar malpractices that the “Bureau is there and it will taken action ànd they will not like the action”.

 

There was no immediate comment from comment the company whose Directors are reportedly outside the country.

    Nice article. I learn something harder on different blogs everyday. It is going to always be stimulating to see articles from different writers and practice a little something in their store. I?d prefer to utilize some with the content on my website whether you don?t mind. Natually I?ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing. {
