We provide high-quality Tanzania wheat to the local and export markets. We source the raw fresh Tanzania wheat from family growers in the country.

Tanzania wheat (Triticum) refers to common wheat, perhaps the most famous grass-family cereal crop after maize. Its primary uses are household including making bread and bakery products in milled form.  In Tanzania, the plant grows mainly in the grassy Manyara region as well as the north of the country.  The country still has more local demand for the cereal than its production capacity of 93000 tons. There are about 96000 hectares under the crop currently. The first place where wheat grew was in southeast Turkey in the mountainous area. It also thrived in neighboring Syria if excavation evidence is anything to go by.

The eating of wheat products gives the body about 327 calories in every 100 grams. Other than starch, the grain is a source of protein which equals 12.61 grams in every 100 grams. The iron margin is about 3.19 milligrams in every 100 grams.

We source Tanzania wheat from the Manyara region and the vicinities of Kilimanjaro including Arusha. Here, our family growers cultivate the crop in less than two acres of land which they enrich with farmyard manure. They also keep their fields free of chemical sprays.

We do our harvesting of Tanzania wheat with both hand means and mechanical methods. Our set of hand-picking and threshing equipment include moisture meters, a cutting tool as well as sickles. The meter does the job of measuring the water content which should be less than 20 percent. The sickle, on the other hand, helps to hold the heads of the chaffs for cutting purposes. We ensure before harvesting starts that the cutter has proper contours and is sharp enough to follow after the sickle.

We begin the hand-picking of Tanzania wheat by bringing the heads of the wheat close enough for cutting.  We pick the chaff about 8 cm from the ground so that the soil will keep undisturbed for the upcoming harvest. Our team of experienced farmhands utilizes the sickle in such a manner that it exposes only the most excellent parts of the chaff to minimize the amount of straw that goes with it. We also use the combine harvester with its merged harvesting and threshing tools-in-one. The machine also cuts the chaff at eight centimeters above the ground to lower the amount of debris that enters its storage.

We then conduct immediate postharvest handling of Tanzania wheat starting with threshing. This applies only to the manual harvesting method at the packinghouse. The combine harvester does its threshing during the same time as it harvests the produce. We usually adjust the rotors to the optimal speed so that the rotation can separate the seeds from the chaff with maximization guarantee. The threshing by hand, on its part, is lengthy but works for small loads of the grain. It involves the rolling of a heavy pin between two towels that hold the cereal intact.

The Tanzania wheat harvest then moves from the threshing compartment of the combine harvester to the winnowing chamber. We set the fans just windy enough to spark off the light flecks to fly away from the grains. The oval-shaped seeds enter the collecting chamber through a sieving hole. In the manual method, our workers sort the threshed wheat by blowing it in the wind to retain only the grains.  We finally get the cereal ready for packing and storage expeditiously.

We dry Tanzania wheat at 60 degrees Celsius. This brings the moisture level to just sufficient enough for storage with no chance of mold formation.

We do our packing of Tanzania wheat in polypropylene bags that come with a capacity for 50 kilograms. Our other media include jute bags and fabrics that have natural vents for the aeration of the produce. In the case of processed flour popular in Tanzania as Unga wa ngano, we use 500-gram atta pack packages for retail. We include the proper labels including the net weight of the shipment, the source and the date of packing.

We store Tanzania wheat at the temperature range of 5 to 15 degrees Celsius. Whenever the drying of the cereal is incomplete, we place it in a well-ventilated place for proper aeration. We continuously monitor the temperatures inside our transportation vans that come with a modified interior environment. We can guarantee an arrival date to your destination from either Arusha or Dar-es-Salaam international airports within 24-48 hours by air.

Therefore, if you would like to avail one of the staples of starch in East Africa, then you need our Tanzania wheat. We obtain the supply of the cereal from family growers in Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)-certified parts of the country.  We go through a phytosanitary handling process right from the harvesting to the chaff removal and packing stages. We also keep the quantity parameter by being in perpetual contact with our suppliers so that they can grow surplus. On the question of pricing, we keep the rates at their lowest to ensure that you get value for money. This is why you should make an order today!
