Zimlabs is continuing its growth efforts as it tries to build its footprint in Africa. Zimlabs strategic direction is to expand into new markets within the African continent. Most African countries economies are primed to grow in the next few years due to better policies,stable political & economic environments and better commodity prices on the world market. Zambia is one such country that has been on a growth trajectory for the last few years and the growth is buoyed by the resurgent copper prices and better mining practices. As such Zimlabs would be bringing its world class analytical services to Zambia to help the industry get timely accurate results to enable fast decisions.
A strategic partner has been identified and negotiations are continuing. The services that will be offered will be in the mining, agriculture and hospitality industry. Zambia’s agriculture has been growing and as such there is need for an accredited laboratory to help farmers know the nutrient content of their soils. This will help the farmers buy the correct fertilisers and get even more harvests.
The Zambian hospitality industry is also growing and as such visitors will demand better quality services. Zimlabs offers food and hygiene quality checks as well as food handlers training. These services will also be coming to Zambia when the microbiology lab is opened.
