NCZ looks to PPPs to prop up production

Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia (NCZ) is mooting plans to reduce reliance on government.

The company has signaled intentions to venture into public-private partnership (PPPs), as the parastatal seek independence.

According to Zuze Banda, NCZ Chief Executive Officer, the company’s intention is to increase production and move into the regional market.

“We are also looking at expanding our product range to start producing Nitrogen and Oxygen gases to other products which we expect to start offloading on the market,” Banda said.

The NCZ products have mostly been distributed through the farmer input support programme (FISP).

Last December, the company through FISP distributed 87,500 tonnes of compound D fertiliser to farmers to 62 districts.
