Episode 3 – Seeing Zambia from England – More info

The Zambian products Sofa refers to in the programme are:

zambianproductsHoney. There’s a brand of honey in some shops called Tropical Forest. The honey they make that’s called Organic Forest Honey is from Zambia, you can get it from Waitrose, or from this internet shop.

Zambikes makes and exports high quality bikes, and some of them are made from bamboo! www.zambikeszambia.com/products/bamboo-bikes/road-bike/

Coffee is grown in Zambia and you can buy some online from here. This coffee is roasted in Europe though – it’s very difficult to get hold of any coffee that’s been roasted in the country where it grew, this is a remnant of the exploitative ‘division of labour’that the European colonisers introduced.

And also: how was this radio programme made? What made the maker uneasy? Sofa speaks to Emma Gradin in this mini-interview (video).
