Cavendish Lloyd Group

Trusted, Quality Tobacco

Call for Shisha growers

September 2023

Cavendish Lloyd is a world wide group of companies in the tobacco industry. It has been fully registered and licensed as a shisha merchant by the Tobacco Industry and Marketing Board (TIMB) in Zimbabwe.

After successful variety and agronomic trials conducted by TRB since 2021 and first season commercial crop in the 2022/23 which was a success and supervised by TIMB, the company now seeks to engage tobacco growers for the coming 2023-2024 season.

The growers are expected to have the following attributes:

  • Fully registered with TIMB
  • Must have production records for the last 3 years
  • Able to grow and have the facilities to handle atleast 5 hectares
  • Located in the slower-growing areas (Goromonzi Marondera, Macheke, Headlands and Rusape)
  • Able to fund their operational cost from land preparation, planting, and fertilization up to first reaping

In turn, Cavendish Lloyd will provide:

  • Shisha seedlings and agronomic services
  • Funding after the first reap until the sales of the crop
  • Guaranteed off-take of everything

The company is therefore looking for adventurous, experienced and dedicated growers that seek to maximize their production by growing a highly profitable but yet low cost shisha style tobacco.
