Margaret Mudenda: Putting her hands to the plough

Zambeef non-executive director Margaret Kunda Chalwe-Mudenda ready to champion agriculture

LUSAKA, ZAMBIA – “I am a fan of Zambeef! I love everything about it,” confirms the company’s newly appointed non-executive director Margaret Kunda Chalwe-Mudenda.
Her relationship with the food retailing company began way back and she likes to jest that it is an affair that is as old as when she could remember being able to afford meat.
“I have been buying Zambeef for a long time and I like the fact that they are trying to catch up with the trends; if you notice in the fridges now, the Zambeef product is no longer just your meat cut up. It is nicely prepared; you’ve got skewered meat on skewers, you’ve got meat wrapped in bacon, you’ve got different varieties nicely spiced, which mean that Zambeef is alive to the various changes in the kitchen!” she said.
