Botswana’s leading supermarket, Choppies, has opened its 18th outlet in Zambia with the latest branch opening its doors to the public in Kapiri Mposhi District.
Choppies Operations Director, Jyothish Canhiradan says Zambia’s favorable investment climate has made it possible for the chain store to swiftly stretch its business to other parts of the country.
Mr. Canhiradan says the supermarket will be sourcing almost 80 percent of its goods that include poultry products, fruits and vegetables from local farmers.
And Government has commended the role private investors and businesses are playing in improving the living standards of the local people.
Kapiri Mposhi District Commissioner Peter Mwiinde noted that the district has continued to receive private investments in various sectors that have resulted in the provision of employment opportunities and improvement of people’s living standards.
Mr. Mwiinde commended Choppies Supermaket for thinking about the local people through provision of ready market for their farm produce.
