We provide high-quality Tanzania palm oil to the local and export markets. We source the raw fresh processed Tanzania palm oil from family growers in the country.
Tanzania palm oil is a dark red, carotenoid-rich product of the palm tree that thrives in small numbers along the coastline and Lake Tanganyika. Tanzania is only a minor producer of this vegetable cooking and cosmetic oil despite its high production potential. Its climate apes that of Southeast Asia where the trees are perennial. Though the country can grow diverse palm varieties, it still imports 0.4 million tons to satiate the appetite for the oil. The tree has its origin within the continent in West Africa.
Palm oil offers mainly unsaturated fat at 153 percent to the body. Its saturated fat is higher at 245 percent.
We source palm oil from family growers around Lake Tanganyika and along the coast. The few farmers own less than 1 acre of land under the crop. They utilize organic means including manure to grow the trees.
We harvest Tanzania palm oil at dawn when the fruits are at their peak green. Our PPE-wearing workers use ladders to scale the tall palms. They cut the branches bearing the fruits from a safe distance using sharpened machetes or pangas. The team then collects the fallen branches and carts them whole to the processing venue. Here they remove the clusters of fruits from the branches for washing.
We prepare Tanzania palm oil by first washing each of the fruit-filled clusters in chlorinated water. After several passes, the fruits now in decontaminated form pass to the next stage of curing. This involves heating the bunches to soften them enough to produce pulp. This preparation is the preliminary to pressing out the oil. By this time the heated shells will have become loose enough for cracking. The heat also boosts the protein margin, and the nutrients are well-distributed within the pulp.
The next stage of preparing Tanzania palm oil is that of threshing. This is the removal of individual fruits from the clusters. The step is essential as it exposes individual members so that they can have a large surface area during processing.
After threshing, we initiate the actual processing of the palms by putting them in the digester. The machine breaks down the fruits after the removal of the outer shell. The effect is the exposure of the pulp for oil extraction. The digester also softens the bonds holding the oil-containing cells. This act ensures that a maximum amount of liquid will be extracted from the cells.
We then subject Tanzania palm fruits into a cold press. The rotating screws squeeze out the 50 percent of oil present in the mesocarp of the fruit. The oil collects into a beaker in crude form. The remaining solids include nuts with their oil that tastes like coconut oil. This nut can undergo further processing, but our primary concern is for the collected pulp oil. The fibers from the pulp also remain next to the nuts as the solid left-overs.
We clarify Tanzania palm oil immediately after it settles in the collecting point. Similar to purification, this process entails the removal of the escaped solids inside the viscous liquid. We use filters which have holes of different dimensions that entrap the debris and let through the clear oil. We let the liquid settle or ‘cure’ for several hours. After this, we pack it via automated means.
We pack Tanzania palm oil in PET bottles. We also have plastic and glass jars in a dark or brown color. The transparent containers show off the characteristic dark red color of the liquid. We provide measures of 500 milliliters and 1 liter or more. We also put airtight stoppers after vacuum-sealing the bottles. We attach the product labels that include its name, ingredients (100 percent pure), the net weight, the expiry date (6 months) and the packing date.
We store Tanzania palm oil at more than the average room temperature to bring down its viscosity or semisolid state. This thickness comes from the fact that the high carotenoid content of the oil attracts oxidation which in turn makes it less liquid. The storage heat point can range from 30 to 50 degrees Celsius.
We transport Tanzania palm oil to the airport in Dar-es-Salaam on the same day of packing. We only use special vans with controlled environment interiors to replicate warehouse temperatures for transportation. You can expect the packages to reach your destination in a day or two after dispatch.
In short, if you are in need of one of the prime exports of Tanzania, then our palm oil will be a perfect candidate. We provide both Oceanside and freshwater-derived palms for processing to suit your taste needs. Whether you need it for culinary, cosmetic or industrial reasons, our supplies always come in sufficient quantities. Besides, we maintain quality right from the farming point as the trees thrive in Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)-certified family sources. You can expect very affordable prices to meet your budgetary needs. Make an order today!
