Grading & Packaging

The Malta Food Agency, in partnership with the Farmers Central Cooperative Society Limited, is working on a project to implement a grading and packing station at the Pitkalija. This Grading and Packaging station will be focused on potatoes and onions. The intention is to start the process of having the Pitkalija products be better presented and packaged in a more consumer-friendly manner. The project is underway, and the Agency has already identified the machinery and location.

Web-App Buyers

The Agency is working on the development on a web application aimed to enable buyers to know what products they have purchased, prices, credit terms and dues. Through the app, buyers will have the functionality to pay online. This app is scheduled to be launched in the next months.

Core IT System at Pitkalija

Technology is at the very core of the Malta Food Agency with major developments in information technology embarked at the Pitkalija in recent years. These include the implementation of a core information technology solution to manage all the deliveries and sales. The solution provides control and management of a cash office to debtors and creditors.

The Agency intends to continue to add functionality. The next phase is to implement handheld devices to record sales in real time. Testing on this system has already been initiated. There is also a plan to have the crates management be fully automated.


The app was launched in April 2022. This app provides farmers with information about their sales and payments received and dues. The Agency intends to push for more functionality in the coming months, mainly by providing more farmers’ related information through this app.

Team Building Event for Malta Food Agency

A team-building event was organised on the 25th of March, 2022 as a way to build stronger team bonds, encourage interaction and boost team morale with a day away from the office.
