WELCOME

We at The Tobacco Association of Malawi believe that the success of the tobacco industry lies in the concerted efforts of all the stakeholders in the industry. Specifically, the farmer plays a vital role to ensure that he/she produces his/her tobacco for sale.

This takes the farmer on a path of defined value chain from the point of production to the point of sale (market). This is why The Tobacco Association of Malawi provides appropriate services to its members to ensure an efficient value chain in order to sustain their business for continuity to keep the tradition going on.

Tobacco Association of Malawi is also a founding member of ITGA.
ITGA - PROTECTING TOBACCO FARMERS ALL OVER THE WORLD.

HOW TO BECOME A TAMA MEMBER

In the first place, TAMA membership is voluntary and is renewed annually. A tobacco grower whether small scale or corporate, registers with the Tobacco Control Commission (TCC) for a following year's production.

The TCC registration form asks the grower to indicate an association to which he belongs by way of filling the space. It is at that point when one writes TAMA as his or her Association that they become a member. Through the TCC data TAMA is able to trace its membership, which stands to benfit from all its services ranging from advocacy to tobacco sales representation in the floors.

Tobacco production is not easy but they are other unscrupulous individuals and groups of people who just want to reap heavily ignoring the producer. This is the time TAMA comes in to aid so that the producer earns what he or she deserves through a win-win protocol.

Now that the 2014-2015 TCC registration has been opened, be encouraged to register so that you grow and sale your crop next season without legal hitches while remembering to endorse TAMA as your Association.

TAMA'S MISSION

To provide visible and compelling services to the grower members and perpetuate sustainable balance in the generation of wealth in a manner that ascertains wider income diversification and value.

TAMA'S VISION

To be the most effective and successful Association in the representation of grower member interests in as far as the promotion of tobacco production and marketing is concerned.
