The main food in Malawi is maize or corn. This is the staple food of people who live off the land as subsistence farmers but it finds its way into most dishes here in a variety of formats.
One such typical dish is Nsima which is made of ground corn. You can see it below on the right next to some chicken stew and nut and lettuce salad. It tastes like a mixture of potatoes and porridge and is quite filling.

Other big industries in Malawi across both agriculture and manufacture are:
3. Fish (Edible and Tropical ones from the lake)
4. Ceramics & Handicrafts
5. Nuts, spices & Dhalis
6. Beer & Soft Drinks (Carlsberg and Coca Cola share a huge factory here)
