Members from the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Science visited Malawi to kick-off the cooperation with local project partner Mzuzu University. Two Master students have just joined here and will conduct their thesis research within the project framework, focusing on the advanced baobab processing sector in Malawi. In this context first field visits were carried out to baobab distribution areas, local markets selling a variety of baobab produce, or baobab processing enterprises, particular juice producers. Thanks to the warm welcome and willingness of collaboration, we anticipate the upcoming research activities to be successful!
