These efforts are aimed at improving the standard and quality of groundnuts for the NASFAM, Afrinut, and Valid Nutrition supply chains.

Five training sessions where held in the districts of Machinga, Ntcheu, Balaka, Nathenje and Mangochi. 518 (45% women) lead farmers were trained in aflatoxin management and mitigation with the long-term goal of training other farmers in their respective communities. A previous lead farmer training with members of CADECOM has resulted in 800 households being trained in the community level.

As a result of this ongoing success, NASFAM together with INVC and SA Trade Hub are planning three more aflatoxin training sessions in Malawi aimed at private and public agriculture field (extension) staff and nutritionists.
