Successful organic certification according to EU guidelines for partners in Tanzania

aw_bio_inspection_webA main concern of africrops! is the continuous quality assurance. On this occasion, Dr. Andreas B. W. Wesselmann (Managing Director) personally traveled to Africa to carefully examine three companies in Tanzania. The inspector of the organic certification company Kiwa BCS was also part of the certification process under Article 29 (1) No. 834/2007.

In Tanzania, scenic landscapes on which Moringa is cultivated were assessed and classified by Dr. Wesselmann as very high quality. “We can be very fortunate that Moringa is cultivated here on virgin soil. The results are impressive”, says Dr. Wesselmann. In addition, the focus was on a large and sparsely populated area of Baobab trees, from which an excellent wild collection of fruits emerged. In short, all plant raw materials were certified in a record time of only 3 months.

All three farms successfully mastered the certification process and are now allowed to export to Europe with an official organic-certificate and organic-label. africrops! will buy directly from all three companies without any intermediaries and market these high quality products in Germany and Europe. From the perspective of africrops! organic certification offers many opportunities for exporting to Europe at more fair and higher prices.
