(ZNBC)-Zambia has started exporting frozen Irish Potato chips to South Africa and Namibia.
The export is being done through Shoprite, one of Africa’s biggest retail supermarkets.
Shoprite Zambia General Manager, CHARLES BOTA says Shoprite South Africa has so far imported 6 containers of frozen chips from Buya Bamba Zambia to be stocked in Cape Town outlets.
Mr. BOTA says an additional 36 containers are already on order.
He says 25 tons of frozen chips were also exported into the Namibian market last month.
Mr. BOTA adds that local Shoprite and Hungry Lion outlets have for the last five months not imported frozen Chips from South Africa because Buya Bamba, a local supplier is able to meet the demand and quality required.
In the recent past, Zambia would previously import frozen Potato Chips worth millions of dollars from South Africa and other markets.
This is according to information posted on Mr. BOTA’s Facebook page monitored and verified by ZNBC News.
