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

Tanzania molasses is the by-product of the sugar refining process, and it is in the form of blackstrap. It is the best quality sugarcane by-product after the raw cane.  Sugar only contains calories, but molasses retain minerals such as iron, magnesium, and calcium. It provides generous amounts of vitamin B6 for promoting metabolism. As a disease-combating agent, it cures constipation, headache, anemia, and obesity. In Tanzania, the processing takes place in such places as Kilombero and Morogolo where there are sugar factories.

We source Tanzania sugarcane for processing molasses from the Kagera and Morogolo regions. We only go for family growers with less than 2 acres of land. We also check that the canes are from older plantations as these have the highest quality. All our sources abstain from the application of chemicals to make their molasses acceptable abroad.

Before processing Tanzania molasses, we first of all harvest the canes from the fields. We begin by clearing all the vegetation around. Then our machete-wielding workers cut the stems at the base but leave stumps that are high enough to promote new growth. We cart away the stems with foliage to the hulling point for preparation before processing.

We process Tanzania molasses in a number of steps. We begin by slashing the raw canes into pieces. This is followed by the removal of stray stalks and leaves from the canes. We go mainly for the older stems as they have better quality than the younger ones. We then wash and rinse the pieces in purified water to remove any impurities like dirt.

The next stage of preparing Tanzania molasses is the crushing of the canes in readiness for extraction. We then knead the crushed paste with mortar and pestle. This gives out thick juice that is either water-colored or yellow-tinted. We then recover the juice in a pot. At this point, it is mainly unrefined sugar. We heat it at 100 degrees Celsius to produce crystal sugar.  From the fact that the boiling point is low, there is still a lot of sugar hidden within the solution.

Nevertheless, the paste still forms the first signs of molasses

We finally enter the stage for real extraction of Tanzania molasses. The procedure begins with the cooling of the thick juice for 12 hours. This is the duration the paste will reach the optimum 10-degrees Celsius storage temperature. There follows fresh boiling of the cool stuff inside a pot. This makes the sugar crystals to evaporate from the solution. They leave behind a sour taste.  Though there are hints of sweetness, the paste which now goes under the name ‘blackstrap molasses’ is thick and ready for packing.

We also blacken the ‘blackstrap molasses’ further upon your request. This is through another bout of boiling which removes virtually all hints of sugariness. After it has gone through a suitable duration of cooling, the black stuff is then ready for packing.

We pack Tanzania molasses in drums of 5 gallons net weight. We also have plastic packets that have a capacity for 6 liters. We also offer flexible packaging upon your specific request.  All our products come inside airtight containers that we harness inside cartons.

We store Tanzania molasses at the recommended temperature of 10 degrees Celsius.  We also reach up to 20 degrees Celsius during the cool weather season.  We put vacuum sealing on each bottle to ensure that it does not come into air contamination.

We transport the molasses on the same day of packing via our special trucks. These come fitted with refrigeration equipment on board. You can expect the dispatch to reach you in the next 24 to 48 hours after shipment.

Therefore, when you have an option between sugar and blackstrap, then we recommend you take the healthier alternative in the name of Tanzania molasses. We source the raw sugarcane from plantations of less than 2 acres that have gone through Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) certifications. We keep the tonnage equal to your exact request by processing in surplus. On top of that, we have very competitive prices. Make an order today!
