On the 29th of April the Port of Nacala received a vessel loaded with sorghum from the United States for Malawi. Malawi, like wise with parts of Mozambique, has been severely hit with the drought and crop production has been highly affected for the past two consecutive years due to the “El Nino” which has affected the harvest in the entire Southern African region.
Port of Nacala is expecting to receive another 300,000 tons for food relief over the next semester. The port has been expanding its structure and is prepared to handle these kinds of loads. It has also hired specialized companies for bagging these cereals.
