Edlyn was recently invited to attend the 2017 Nando’s Peri-Peri Farms Conference, which was held at Livingstone Beach in Salima, Malawi. The 4 day conference brought together many of Nando’s long standing suppliers and manufacturers from around the globe to discuss the growth plans for Nando’s into the next financial year and beyond. The reason for the location of the conference was that Malawi is home to many of the bird’s eye chilli Peri-Peri farms from where Nando’s source this ingredient from, to make its famous Peri-Peri sauces.
Conference attendees were treated to tours of these farms seeing how the bird’s eye chillies were picked, dried and processed to then be sent to Nando’s sauce manufacturers around the globe. In working with these farms in Malawi, Nando’s have created partnerships with local communities to help increase their quality of living through providing increased wages, better housing and better transport facilities for families.
Edlyn’s General Manager Amir Arjmand attended the event and found that the conference really showcased Nando’s long term commitment to its product quality and its brand.
