Founded by a diverse group of leaders, the Industrial Crops Association (ICA) provides world-class educational and market development resources, research, networking opportunities to unify the voice of Industrial Crop Farmers to actively engage in critically important advocacy efforts.
The mission of the ICA is to contribute to the economic and social development of Malawi by promoting cultivation and research in industrial crops. The ICA envisions a situation where high value industrial crops will be able to provide alternative livelihoods for small scale farmers and also provide opportunities for larger entities in cultivation, value addition and marketing locally and internationally. Some crops which hold promise in this regard include industrial hemp; medical cannabis; essential oil plants and herbs; various indigenous herbs and plants with medicinal or other value; tree and forestry cash crops.
Since 2014, ICA through its membership has thus far been at the forefront of research and lobbying for Hemp in Malawi. ICA was formally registered in 2018 and through its membership that includes INVEGROW, Malawi Mangoes and Pyxus, have continuously worked with the Malawi Government, Parliamentarians, DARS, the Media and many other stakeholders in the legislation and research of Hemp in Malawi. It is from the back bone of this success and the tremendous interest Hemp has generated, that ICA with offices located at Synergy Complex in Lilongwe, seek to recruit a full time Administrator.
