Since 2013, Invegrow has been a pioneer in leading the cause for Industrial Hemp in Malawi, investing significant time and resources in promoting awareness about the crop in the country.

 

Our Mission

To create a dynamic and viable hemp industry by partnering with experts in our field in order to become a leading company in Africa producing seed, genetics, extracts, and food from our own farms and farmers in Malawi.


Why use up forests that took centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields
— Henry Ford, Founder of Ford Motor Company
