MTI half-year report (H1) 2022

"Over the past eight years, our investments have generated huge social impact - hundreds of jobs, healthy food products, houses, bank branches for improved access to finance, genuine and safe cosmetics, and saved nature from thousands of tons of waste. Our companies, even though challenges remain, are now more than ever focused on profitable growth, and particularly satisfying to see that Shambani Milk made a strong lift after seeing its performance drag for several quarters."
Pontus Engström, CEO of MTI Investment
