Breadfruit in Zambia now feautured in the Breadfruit Institutes Newsletter

Very good news from Blair from Global Breadfruit:

Global Hunger Initiative: From Central America to the Heart of Africa

We’re thrilled that Zambia has become the latest country to receive breadfruit trees from the Global Hunger Initiative. BFI donated 100 trees that were hand-carried in a backpack from Global Breadfruit in Germany to Zambian Lloyd Lukama Kasela. For more than six months, Lloyd has worked tirelessly to bring breadfruit to his country, driving hundreds of kilometers for the correct permits and educating his community. The trees are thriving in a greenhouse Lloyd built himself, and grew new leaf shoots less than two weeks after their arrival.

  1. Good afternoon . I am the General manager on the farm Toleza , district of Balaka in Malawi . we have been planting trees and encouraging local communities to do the same in this area . I am interested in the bread fruit and would like to see if it is possable through you to get some material which we will propagate and give to the communities around us . the chairman is very interested in stopping yearly shortages of food and believes this could go a long way to assisting in eradicating hunger . any information will be gratefully received

    1. hello clive. thank you for your comment. i will talk to our people in zambia about your request and we will get back at you as soon as we can. the breadfruit indeed is a fantastic fruit. i think you should also talk to Lloyd. he is the man responsible for everything in Zambia. maybe exchanging ideas would have both out countries benefit.
      best wishes,
      Julie from PAF
