Tanzania honey or asali in Swahili is the number one product of bees. The country generates 1.7 million dollars from the beekeeping sector. About 2 million Tanzanians directly or indirectly benefit from the sector. The biggest producers are small-scale keepers who use traditional extraction. Indeed, 95 percent of hives are traditional, and 99 percent of the production methods are equally old. The bee-keeping areas of the country include the south in Lindi and the central and northern regions. Though initially a pastime in the forested areas, settled locations including Manyara and Singida districts have also become commercial honey centers. Beeswax was also a major export of the country in post-independence days. The agency behind the production of honey and wax in the country is the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism.
Honey is highly nutritious. Each spoonful comes with 82 g of starch which represents 27% of the daily requirements. The 304 calories present are worthy of this highly energetic product. Its fat-free content makes it an excellent remedy against high cholesterol. In disease terms, honey brings down blood triglycerides in the blood. This lowers glucose levels and helps to reduce obesity. The nectar-composed nutrients of honey also overcome allergic reaction to food for many people.
We source Tanzania honey from the tropical forests of the country. We also get it from Singida, Manyara, and Lindi. Our sources use mainly traditional hives which are about five per acre.
We harvest honey under hygienic and safe international standards. All our team members come fully protected from head to foot in their PPE and hand gloves. Initially, the workers clear the bees by smoking the beehives. After the buzzing inhabitants have gone, the team props open each hive with the use of crowbars. A whiff of safe gas inside the combs removes any entrapped bees. The workers are now able to pry out the honey from the wax combs through sharp pincers.
Our next step in the production of Tanzania honey is the use of an extractor machine. The device extracts the thick honey which collects in a drum just beneath the extractor. Each of our workers hand-manipulates a cranking tool that separates the sweet syrup from the wax on its way to the drum. Additionally, the use of cheese cloths entraps any stubborn wax while the liquid brown honey seeps through. The cloth may have a large or thin mesh which lets in the thick, sweet syrup.
For any Tanzania honey that remains entrapped in wax, extra processing offers full release. We use ‘water bath’ equipment for this purpose. This involves indirect heaters that lower the moisture content to below 17%. We also clean the resulting honey thoroughly to remove any stain of wax. Our resourceful team also melts the remaining solids to make beeswax, which is in demand in the paints and glue industries.
Our Tanzania honey-packing material is transparent glass in pot form. Our smallest measures are 1.2-oz bottles that include cork stoppers for freshness enhancement. The larger pots have a capacity of 16.9 oz. We then keep several of these pots in polyethylene-lined cartons for secure storage to your destination. We include custom serving spoons from exotic carved timber for value addition. We finalize the packing process by attaching the labels of the net weight, expiry date and the country of origin.
We store Tanzania honey at the ambient temperatures of between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius to preserve the golden color: too low temperatures and the liquid may turn colorless and too high, and it may become dark.
We use special vehicles to transfer the honey to the airport in either Dar-es-Salaam or Arusha. You can expect the packages in the next day or two from the dispatch date.
In short, we are your one-stop provider of Tanzania honey from family beekeepers in the East African nation. We favor sources with less than five hives on their land as this implies proper management and thus fresh quality honey. We also keep the golden product in ample quantities that match your exact requirements. Besides, we maintain our prices at the lowest margins after adjusting them to the market rates. This makes it possible to obtain the otherwise premium liquid gold at less than the usual rates. Make an order today!
