Frozy manufacturer hits back: ‘Our drinks conforms to regional standards’

Mozambican company Yaafico Industrial, which makes the Frozy brand of soft drinks, has rejected claims by the Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) that the Frozy drinks do not meet the standards laid down by the Malawian authorities.

The MBS banned the selling and importation of Frozy saying the drinks contain high levels of citric acid and the food preservative sodium benzoate.

Frozy got banned in Malawi.

But according to media reports, Yaafico Industrial has claimed that its drinks conforms to regional standards and are certified by, and frequently analysed by, the National Food and Water Hygiene Laboratory (LNHAA) of the Mozambican Health Ministry.

The company also claimed that in the last analysis, in August, and in all previous ones, the levels of acidity detected were in conformity with the standards demanded by the LNHAA, and throughout the southern African region.

The company said it could show some documents indicating that Frozy has a certificate of quality issued by the Mozambican Ministry of Industry and Trade and collaborates regularly with the National Inspectorate of Economic Activities (INAE).

Yaafico also protested that it had never been asked by the Malawian authorities about the quality of its products. The company accused the MBS of bad faith, since it should have notified the Mozambican authorities about the matter, under the trade protocol of SADC (Southern African Development Community).

The company says it intends to appeal against the MBS decision, in order to “restore the truth” about its products.

When announcing the ban, MBS said it inspected samples of Frozy and found that the level of citric acid in the drinks ranged from 2,240 to 5,376 mg/kg compared with a permitted maximum of 3,000 mg/kg.

Following the ban, MBS director Davlin Chokazinga said the bureau will conduct sweeping exercises through its market surveillance activities in due course to ensure that the product is removed from the market.

He said anyone found stocking, distributing or selling the product after the announcement shall be penalized and prosecuted in accordance with section 44 of the MBS Act (Cap 51:02).

Malawians have also been asked to desist from buying and consuming the product forthwith until the MBS verifies through further conformance assessments the shortfalls of the drink.

  • Ku Malawi they don’t like competitors when it comes to big companies, yayenela company ina yagwaza msomali pamenepo kuti frozy asowe. Zaka zose m’mbuyomu ikangofika nthawi yotentha zakumwa zawo zimasowa ndipo zikapdzdka zivindikilo zake zimakhala zadzimbili which poses a health risk to consumers but not even a single day the authorities came in to rescue its citizens on this, while for frozy it’s where they have find a health hazard, shame. Instead of working on how they can maximize revenue on frozy they’ve decided to ban it.

  • MBS stop tarnishing that company’s name with your blatant lies, you think we don’t know that it is SOBO behind all this??, their products stopped doing well on the market, people diverted their love to frozy, they couldn’t help but became jealous and made a complaint to MBS who came up with this crap! now tell those SOBO people to improve on their cleanliness, yes we understand recycling but their bottles are so unattractive! not appealing at all, especially the mouth of the bottle. do they ever clean them or they just pour in again?? so as you can see, it’s not that we are dazzled by your drink, no!, it’s because we don’t have an alternative, frozy was, so don’t take your customers for granted.

  • The problem of Malawi industries they don’t want competitive market , they want panoplies and they forget that competitive market are important to the citizens and development of the nation. So frozy brought competition against SOBO soft drinks . Thus why…….?

      Man zizingatheke mukunenazi. Southern Bottlers has a monopoly which prevents other companies from producing soft drinks in Malawi. Foreign companies are only be allowed to sell but not to produce in Malawi. Nda malamulo achitsamunda, and for your information, Southern Bottlers is not a Malawian company. Kumazitsata zinthuzi.

  • Only what government should say is that, the soft drink seemed to have been smuggled and govt did not benefit on tax ( duty). Thats to me the point on all this ban.

  • I’m agree so much with your post Michael Mkandawire, Nkani ndiomveka imeneyo, If they want to continue with their business to Malawi they must manufacturing their drinks in Malawi sothat they can boost our economy!! Than just selling to Malawi we don’t want to put down ourselves. We love our mother Malawi.

    • We need pple like u in our countries. They must sell at least 40% of shares to Malawians. Have factories in Malawi to employ our own brothers and sisters like other companies. Pay tax and sponser activities eg netball,tenis,soccer in Malawi that is giving back to the community. Not just make money and go.

    • Mmmm what about those goods that are being imported? Almost all the super markets in 🇲🇼 are selling imported goods. Where’s the difference with Frozzy?

    • Shoprite za Ku Malawi zingati???

    • Thats a good question. Shoprite is registerd by MRA. That means their products are being taxed and not all of their products come from SA but some they buy straight 4rm Malawian Farmers. They employed almost 85% employees are Malawians (job creation). They have a program that feeds orphans and health cares. They also contribute on Drought relief while they are being tax. They also gave an oppotunity to invest by selling shares to Malawians. Some of their products they buy from Malawian farmers. Some they sell in Malawi some they export to other countries were they dont have that product. Eg Malawian coffee is top class, Malawian tea and nuts they buy also. They also provide busaries to underprevilage students.

  • My name is Esther Maunga and this a testimony of how i became HIV NEGATIVE, i have been suffering from HIV for the past three years, i have spend a lot of money finding cure for HIV/AIDS until i found this true man who cured me completely with his powerful herbal medicine, i have tried different means to get this virus out of my body, all the possible ways i tried did not work out for me, i came across doctor olumo through some amazing testimonies concerning how Dr Olumo has cured different people from various kind of sickness like HERPES,HIV/AIDS, CANCER, with the help of his powerful Herbal Medicine, so i was encourage and i contacted Dr Olumo i told him about my Sickness, He told me not to worry that he was going to prepare some Herbal Medicine for me, after some time in communication with Dr Olumo he finally prepared for me the herbal medicine which he sent to me through courier service and he also gave me prescriptions on how to use it, after taking the Herbal medicine for some days, i went for test to confirm and the result was totally negative ,i went for test again in a different hospital still the same negative , Today i am fit and healthy to live life again, I am so happy for the good work of Dr Olumo in my life, if you are having a simillar problem kindly email HIM on { doctorolumo@gmail.com} OR CONTACT HIM WITH HIS NUMBER OR CHAT WITH HIM ON (WHATSAPP) (+2348138956767) together we can live an HIV free life.

  • I don’t see any reason why the Government of Malawi banned frozy, in each and every business they must face competition and competition is there, and if Sobo was bright enough they must agree to take competition and they should improve their products and services by adding more quality, so that they have a duty to gain the market share………They must accept the challenge and join in with their players. Not failing to accept the challenges by the side of the market.

  • HELLO FRIENDS PLEASE HELP ME TO THANK GOD FOR USING DOCTOR ALBERT TO CURE ME FROM MY DISEASE.. I have been suffering from HIV/AIDS disease for the last five years and had constant pain, especially in my body. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulate all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (Herpes virus and Cancer) by this Man Dr. Albert and she also gave the email address and what’s app number of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr. Albert on what’s app. I told him about my HIV/AIDS he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! With his haberl root. hmm i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy send to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as the Dr Albert assured me that i have cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was true, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness disease, HERPES CURE OR CANCER OR HPV CURE,HIV&AIDS, or any other at all you can email Dr Albert, on: dr.aiberttempel@gmail.com you call him telephone:+2349056530984 get your healing too

  • The issue at play here is industrial sabotage.My wild guess is that someone who lost business with the influx of frozy drink is using MBS to take off frozy from the market. How many confectionaries have flooded our market under the watchful eye of MBS?Whats so special with frozy to deserve such a harsh treatment from MBS?What about the Mozambican liquor that has flooded our markets under the watchful eye of the same MBS?Why the double standards?Shame on MBS.

  • Malawi wangooneka kuti ndi wansanje. Bwanji osatengerapo nzeru bwanji izi 1 frozy ndiochipa 2 ndiochulukirapo 3 botle la plastic subwedza. Ingopezani njira yabwino yopangira dzinthu zabwino kumakukaniza ndi nkhanza izi. Ufiti bas koma win ee zaziii

  • Frozy is killing as. Since i started drinking. Frozzy i am weak nd i cnt peform in bed. Witch is bad for my young age. I am trying to take. More GONDOLOSI now myb it will help. So frozzy mast fall. Hey dnt start on me now.

  • competition brings innovation, that is why tikuti malawi sizatukuka it is refusing competition which means it is refusing innovation as well . why cant they just innovate and move on the market like what their friends are doing. ine nasiya kumwa fanta ndi frozy basi. akanakhala shooter bwezi pano mutakandiika but up to now am still fit ndiye kuti alo bho.

    • What i want to say is Sabs went procedures and register with MBS right. Why cant Frozy go that same way and register and pay tax that contribute Malawian economy and c if the price wil be the same. They must build factory in Malawi then employ Malawians then pay tax to Malawi goverment then the competition is fair. Frozy company is acutually killing Malawi economy. Now is Sabs close down their company, how many pple wil lose jobs. That means we have lost an investor ( As u know Sabs is under Delta company coca cola trademark. It is a multi national company). They might close down operation and go to other countries. While u encourage the goverment to attract investors,* u are allowing other pple to invest in Malawi without getting a tax that wil pay police,teachers, and any goverment infrastructure. Until when we rely on donors than for us to make money in our country that wil boost our economy. They must also have 50% Malawian share holders to boost Malawians. Thats why we wil remain poor til ever.

    • not all things we use hear in Malawi have factories hear..zikhala za msonkhoso si nkani yovuta why dint thry discuss that with their fellows about the taxes than planting lies in peoples heads about frozy being too much acidic, zimenezo akanakambirana and see the way forward,

    • why should they close down? do you mean pa markwt pasamakhale competition? nde bwezi ma company ambiri akutsekatu because of competition . kutsekako nde mphavu yothawa innovation yo. inu magulu oti mwatsegula shop nkutseka poti mwaona ena atsekulaso yawo close to you.. sititseka timangopanga innovate to fit the markert basi.

    • How can u innovate if one company is paying tax and another is not? How can u innovate when one company create job oppotunity while another is not? So u are saying other companies who are paying tax must stop to fit the competition. What i want to say is let them in the country and pay rates/tax and c if the price will be the same. Of cause we can import products that we dont have in the country. That means i wil not pay tax and c how the goverment wil last.

    • Thats why I am saying there was need for proper negotiation osangofikira. ayi too much acidity bla bla bla.

  • Frozy is cheaper than fanta ndiyepagona nkhani

  • I would go for frozy not coke coz apart from bottling coke their bottles are also used as a sexual satisfaction tool by some women in Malawi. And coke is expensive

  • No option,MBS has it striken it right and at an opportune time.I sow frozy was posing some threats that could lead and jeopardize our beneficial companies like Sobo and mine.I can dare to stay away from FROZY but suicidal to see SOBO to opt for the extinction of fanta,Coco and sprite.I wish Frozy all the best as it sojourns in Mozambique.

    • No bro frozy was selling kamuzu’s mcp era cards! I one day engage in dat business,yoo so hot! It is a petty jealous frm MBS,no hazardous to human beings as you claim!!!

  • Criminal A says:

    Who doesn’t know that there is one big company with a colonial monopoly to manufacture soft drinks involved in this ban? Where is MBS when Malawians are eating rotten meat and near-expired food from supermarkets as well as all other food stuffs without any specifications at all such as freezes, thobwa, zigumu, mandasi, chakulamba, samoosa etc. The truth is that one big soft drink manufacturing company started making losses because of this frozy stuff. Because honestly speaking, from has taken over the market for soft drinks. Now they are trying to get the competitor out via some technical issues, kkkkkkk!

    If I was a Chief Executive of this big company, I could simply have borrowed a leaf from frozy by starting to manufacture low-budget beverages to reach out to the common man in the village. Honestly speaking any drink apart from water is dangerous, tisamanamizane. Ngati Cocacola timatsukira ma terminal a battery, what damage does it do to our bodies? I rest my case.

  • let us lov our nation by buyng our own local manufurcturng products, ths money used to purchase ths wat u call it Frozy is being benefited by outsiders. ths in turn makes our nation poorest of all. ofcoz MBS made t wrong to de general public on de resonz of de barn of dis drink. hwever, its my plea to #Yaafico_company to register their products to MBS otherwise they r against them.

    • what about the shooter spirits,dont they destroy malawians? Between frozy n shooter spirits which one can destroy Malawi development

    • ofcoz yu r sayng truth my friend but wat am sayng z dat w shud atleast buy our local products coz de money remains in de country & u also benefit of it.

    • local product like what? and how many can manage to buy SOBO products at k280 kwacha especially in the rural areas? while Frozy is at k180 or 200 in rural areas. and ine koyamba mudziwa frozy ndinamuziwira kumudzi and anthu akumudzi samakhala ndi ma empty coca-cola bottle kukagula ma fantawo kumawavuta .

    • you are the very same people who make a lot of noise that #Malawi is not meeting your demands yet you are buying unregisterd products from other countries. do you think Malawi can develop with this kind of unpatriotism?

    • wen started buyin fanta..along tym ago..we t was @ 6 kwacha ntil now..so wat kind of development z t bringin since dat time??..or u min if we buy now @280 dats wen t gona bring developmnt?.

    • In Malawi zakinja zonse ndizabwino even if it has negative economic impact on our nation

    • anyway! i understand dat w cant b of the similar mindset towards enhancing various developments in our country.

    • We may all wish to buy our local products but most of them are expensive as compared to those that are imported.

    • Jame Li says:

      we already hav a sick development in malawi even titayakhula motan they wont be a change everbody want a change 4 malawi istead its goin worse….mbs,,should jus leave frozy alone,,,they ar more things @the market zothi azichose zomwe sizili good kwa munthu kuli ma spirits oti anachita kulemba 40% ABV..thats poizon guyz

    • za monopoly mukufunazo mudzaona kuipa kwake zikadzafika pa escom no beta sevices since theres no competition.Competition is good it leads to production of quality products at reasonable prices.kumazionatu ndimaso atsogolo abale

    • za monopoly mukufunazo mudzaona kuipa kwake zikadzafika pa escom no beta sevices since theres no competition.Competition is good it leads to production of quality products at reasonable prices.kumazionatu ndimaso atsogolo abale

    • ndye mukuona kut ndizabwino katundu ngat ameneyi azilowa opanda msonkho?

    • Zazii how many products on our markets are imported? Understand trade! Even your trousers its imported why didnt you bought locally made? Its quality! So don’t tell us nonsense things.Quality, volume, and range of Frozy tastes can not sastify our desire!

    • genlemen, i do understand trade quite good, but de thng here is, wat prompted the MBS to intervn on Frozy yet we hav so many imported goods on our markets. had it been dat de Frozy company had followed all de procedurs to inroduce their soft drink in this country, defnetly there wud hau no ban. u must knw that theze r some of de key factors that gear down our little economy. let frozy b in our markets but they must respect all de procedurs required by MBS. zovala za akaunjika munenazo amapereka msonkho. musatinamizepo apa ayi.

    • I dont see anything wrong with the drink

    • Look Maclean the drink itself has a problem of acid level against MBS standards. That has a side effects and ulcers. If the want to have a company in Malawi, they are welcom to come. They wil follow the procedure of paying tax, having at least 40% shares to Malawians, employ 90% Malawians. 2) the company is not contributing in Malawi economy. They dont give back to the community like companies we have in Malawi. Coca cola sponsors in sports and other activities in the country. We have Carlsberg trophy. So we must benefit to boost our economy. Kwacha ikugwa day by day. We need competition of products in the country but that must be by law.

  • Hey MBS why not ban the cheap beer people sell here in malawi which is not good to our healthy? Don’t disturb us we want more Frozy than beer please do something else we are destroyed by this beer called win win,shooter aaaaaa you please frozy is just a soft drink I love it.

  • The issue here is about Southern bottlers not MBS….NOOOOOOOO!!!malawi will never develop if this kind of corruption continues. ..if southern bottlers sees that there is stiff competition with FROZY then they should look into there prices of there drinks. ..you are killing us with your exorbitant prices as if you are importing your fantas/coces/sobo….think about it….and we need companies like YAAFICO INDUSTRIES to come and invest in malawi and lets see if SOBO can withstand the competitor. …This is a wake up call to both Malawi bureau of standards and Malawi Government. …Bravo YAAFICO INDUSTRIES….COME TO MALAWI WITH YOUR FROZY DRINK AND WE WILL HIGHLY SUPPORT YOUR PRODUCT AND PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO SUE MALAWI BUREAU OF STANDARDS.

  • That company should come forward with any trade agreements in Malawi and show us if they were complying with duty payments

  • Timwe zimenez basi safuna asiya

  • Frozy Is The Mwekable & Cheap Drink Than Those From Southern Bottlers. Musakhomerere Ngat Mufuna Mungositsa Mtengo Zosakoma Zanuzo Kut Anthu Azikwanitsa Kugula

  • Mukamaliza zanuzo mutiuza…bt for now ife tidakamwa zimenezi mpakana nselu

  • Ife tikumwabe Frozzy pa Tsangano pano ku Ntcheu, akamatibweretsera apolisi tikumakhala mbali ya Mozambique ife pheeeee

  • Tanyah Trintas Mlenga and Eu Nice hear this

  • Koma m’malawi sadzatheka,if mbs says there z mo acid in frozy drnk,it means thy thnk much about malawians.kod wina atapezeka nd matenda acilendo cifukwa drnkyi mungadandaule?komanso they r nt payng taxes MRA igwire ntchito yake m’ma boda onse

    • ask yourself afa ndi frozy ndi anthu angati ndipo afa ndi shooter ndi anthu angati? zikakhala zansonkhozo amakambirana osati kungofikira kubana.

    • Mr Banda. Pple only look one side of this frozy drink. Does this company employ Malawians? Does this company contribute to our economy? Does this company allow 50% of its share holders to Malawians. If pple had side effects who is going to spend money in hosiptal?(its goverment) while frozy just makes money without safety of Malawians. If they can register with MBS i am sure they wil reduce acid %. This is also damaging our economy as a country. Come on Malawi lets not lose investors that we have already to company that does not help our economy.

  • Its a mission for southern Bottlers to ban frozzy, it is killing their bussines, frozzy is taking place everywhere now , they made this deal with MBS to ban frozzy since it is marketable than they expessive drinks!

  • Frozy is cheap and timagula together wth abottle so ngati mukufuna ku baner frozy,,fanta we should buy at k200 and stimabweza bottle!! Komanso azidzazamo like frozy.

  • Amalawi!! MBS ndintchito yawo kuteteza anthu awo ku zovuta zomwe zingabwere ndi zakudya. Palibe katangale apa. Andrew know this kuti ban imeneyi ikanachitikira zakumwa zathu KuMozambique’ko, kukanakhala kumenyedwa nkumenyedwa, zakumwazo nkumatiyayira. Koma lero tili pano kuchita defend zakumwa zomwe a MBS kuti zili ndi vuto ataziyeza. Zomwe a Mozambique akulephera kufotokoza bwino.

  • Inu a MBS dzoyezera dzanu ndi za awa akunjawa zamphamvu ndiziti? Huh? Inu mmatinamiza eti?

  • NANDOS chicken is so expensive. its like their chicken lived a great life and grew up in a loving home with both parents and went to a private school…….

  • Wat about those home industries making juice wa malambe,ar they gud enough to pple healthy?

  • Guyz busines yavuta ndimaona ngat ndikumudzi kokha kuno,ndi ma kampan omwe?

  • Kodi Ku Malawi kuno ndiku Mozambique kumene angapange zinthu zastandard ndikuti?

  • Come on guys mukudandaula kuti dziko lathu kwacha ikugwa day by day. While u dont support yo products made in Malawi. U want to buy products from other countries of which they dont contribute in our economy at the same time they have not gone the same procedure like other companies who are paying tax and contribute our nation. Look at other countries they dont support our products. That means Malawi ndikumutaya kwama rejects. If it is good for them then let them sell in Mozambique. Or they have to be registerd like other companies who are paying tax. Tangoganizani pamsika ena akudula matickets amunicipal koma ena akungogulitsa without ticket. Amene sanadule ticket lacity or atsitse mtengo it doesn’t affect bcoz he didn’t pay fee. Lets not just oppose anything that comes. But lets think b4 we criticise MBS.

    • We cud hav supported our own products, but there r so many reasons why we shun them. What can b good by supporting ur own products and at the end u become bankrupt? mind u we get funds differently, katundu wathuyu akudula udyo pamene frozy even wakumudzi akatopa ndi khasu cud atleast quench hz/ha thirsty with only k200 by buying frozy, and had it been it oz the reason as u hav just stated then they cud hav told us the truth, rather than cheating on us that it has a high concentration of acid, wat about coke? which is more dangerous interms acidity,,,

    • IS IT WRONG TO BUY PRODUCTS FROM OTHER countries BUT U WANT THOSE OTHER countries TO BUY UR PRODUCTS, HOW CAN U FEEL WHEN SOME ONE COMES AND SAY SOMETHING BAD ON WHAT U PRODUCE YET U KNOW THAT UR PRODUCT HAS NO PROBLEM?

    • I think we need to understand that price goes up becoz of so many factors. 1) if the goverment increase tax. 2) if the petrol,electricity goes up. If the company is running loss due to losing market eg to frozy who dont pay tax. If frozy want to be competing with Sabs, they must built a factory in Malawi. And employ pple 4rm Malawi. Then some of their fund wil be used in Malawi. That wil boost Malawi Kwacha. But if we want to buy untaxed products we are killing our own our country and boosting other countries while killing our economy. How can i buy chimanga 4rm somewhere while my brother is selling maize right here. Nanga ngati product yaFrozy is good why cant they sell to their country then pay tax there in Mozambique.

    • Ziko la mozambique limafunika kuligwira ngati dzira, chifukwa relation ya malawi ndi moshco is not symbiosis but a dependance mozambique can do without malawi while on the other hand cant malawi do without mozambique. Malawi depends on mozambique for survival.

    • Man you are great thinker but many Malawians are blindfolded

    • ati chifukwa fanta ndi coco sidzimayenda malonda. for sure no company can produce something un standard then export it. kukhomerera basi, ndiye nanga mozambique ikanena kuti zonse zomwe zimafikila ku madoko awo to malawi its of sub standard zifune kolowera kkkkkkkk MALAWI IWEEEEE

    • Handle with care? Anthu akhondowo. Sudziwa kuti akhoza kukuthira #machaka ngakhale utamwako ka fuloze kawoko. Moshico suyidziwa eti. Try 2go 2SA and pass thru dea country, u’ll see mbonawona

    • Kukhala land-locked shldn’t be a reason. U mean kut olo atakukozerani chakudya chamabibi mutha kudya coz u live in a land-locked country. Nkhani niyakut a MBS amayenera akumane ni akampan ya Frozyyo kut afuse bwino za int’l standard akuinenayo. Coz kufufuza kumakhala kosiana malinga nizida zogwiritsa ntchito yofufuzayo. So osamangot land-locked** mudzalanditsa nazo mudzi zimenezo.

    • Vuto lake nkhaniyi wayilowera, kumapeto, mbs have taken an industrial punishment without a proper research because ku botswana the same frozzy is been sold. Ukukamba za nego b4 action zo, thats what we have been recomending could have happened. Still next kumapeleka ma example proper to sudject being disscused nanga company ingapange bibi,.still these are just our opinions..kkkkk

  • Frozy wayambaxo kumwedwa bas

  • Had it been that frozy is of low standards, then i couldn’t find it at the hightable in Gaberon Botswana when Botswana ministers were presiding over the ceremony commemorating world braless day

  • Mocambican products are by far a mismatch to many of Malawian made products, thats why ours will not penetrate their market. Our beverages being protected by the MBS can’t command any market forces in Mocambique.

  • Ngati mkotheka inu a company ya Yaafico mutatipangilako wambiri Frozy akufunika kuno timwe mu December maka wama grapes uja akhale ochulukilapo mubwelese pa magalimoto a Rhinamo muzatisiileko plz
