We harvest Ethiopia teff the same way as sorghum and millet. We cut the chaffs from the top of the plant using sharp cutlery by hand means. Soon after harvest, we pack Ethiopia teff onto akomada, which refers to goatskin bags in Amharic. We also use woven sacks that keep the chaff aerated all the way to the packing shed. This is followed by forced air drying. We then thresh the produce to remove the chaff from the grains. This is followed by winnowing which leaves the grains free of impurities.
We pack Ethiopia teff into a minimum of 25 kilo gunny bags. We also use similar weights in our custom propylene bags that preserve the grains in a well-hydrated manner. We also go for the internationally accredited kraft paper bags that can carry the grains in light packages.
We store Ethiopia teff under cool, dry conditions in temperatures of below 15° Celsius. We then transport the produce to the port of Djibouti or in small quantities to the Bola International Airport under precooled conditions.
