Welcome to SUGAM
Sugarcane Growers Association of Malawi (SUGAM) is an apex body of the small scale sugarcane growers in Malawi who grow sugarcane for industrial purposes. The association was established in 2014 as part of the outputs of the Capacity Building for Sugar Outgrowers project which was implemented by United Purpose (Formerly Concern Universal) from 2010 – 2017 with funding from European Union (EU) through National Authorizing Office (NAO) of the Government of Malawi and Solidaridad Network Southern Africa Trust.
Currently there are about 8000 farmers in Nkhotakota and in Chikwawa. The number will increase with the establishment of Salima Sugar Factory in Salima where smallholder farmers are also involved in sugarcane production.
