Perisha Agro and Packaging Enterprise - Malawi

Perisha Agro & Packaging Enterprise is a legally registered business in Malawi focusing on the multiplication of Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato (OFSP) which is rich in vitamin A unlike the traditional white sweet potato. The government and NGOs buy and distribute OFSP vines to local farmers. In Malawi, research shows that 800,000 children under five are malnourished while one million suffer from Vitamin A deficiency. OFSP is a unique product that improves the nutritional status of pregnant women, new mothers and children under five, and therefore responds to the government’s ‘First 1,000 days: Scaling-Up Nutrition Initiative.’
