Alliance One's Malawi Agronomy Team Receives Golden Leaf Award At Tabexpo 2011

MORRISVILLE, N.C., Nov. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance One International, Inc. (NYSE: AOI) today announced that on November 16, 2011, its Malawi agronomy team received a Golden Leaf Award, awarded by Tobacco Reporter at Tabexpo 2011 held in Prague, related to initiatives that promote farmer sustainability and food security in Malawi.

Mark W. Kehaya, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer, said, " Malawi is an important burley sourcing market where we have a factory and developed presence. Our Malawi agronomy team has been focused on increasing contract growing through our Integrated Production System ('IPS'), which we have demonstrated improves quality, crop yields and profit to the farmer."

J. Pieter Sikkel, President, commented, "Individual farmer contracting with IPS allows our team on the ground to help the farmer institute best agronomic practices in a compliant and socially responsible manner. Our model is predicated on farmer sustainability to ensure that tobacco is produced to the quality and quantity required by our customers."

Graham Kayes, AOI's Regional African Director, remarked, "We are honored to receive this prestigious award that reflects our commitment to the farmer in Malawi. I would also like to acknowledge the contribution made by all members of the Alliance One agronomy team in Malawi for making this possible."
