Treatment ChambersOur seeds and grains are processed by a well maintained seed cleaning plant with machines from Cimbria in Denmark and all commodities are treated against vermin through a unique and computerized natural fumigation system developed by EcO2 in the Netherlands. The palletized goods receive a low oxygen application for a few days in a sealed climate room. It is the most environment friendly way to control rats and mice and also effectively kills insect eggs, larvae and adults insects.

Water Tank Behind Factory About 60,000 liter of rainwater is stored for daily use and the organic waste from processing is ploughed back to our organic farm on site where we intercrop chilli peppers with beans, ginger and mango trees.

Local exporters can bring their products for cleaning and for natural fumigation to one of the service terminals. Our facility is the only one of its kind in East Africa.
