So far the company is exporting Sesame and coffee.

  • Sesame: – is an ancient oil crop supplying seeds for confectionery Purposes, edible oil, paste cake and flour. It is typically a crop of small farmers in the developing countries like ours. Statistics shows that all but 1000 ha of 7 million ha of sesame grown were in developing countries. Sesame has important agricultural attributes: it is adapted to tropical and temperate conditions, grows well on stored soil moisture with minimal irrigation or rainfall can produce good yields under high temperatures.
  • Coffee: – is the most important agricultural commodity in Ethiopia, where over 25% of the population depends on this crop from their livelihood. In Ethiopia coffee is produced mainly by small scale farmers. Recently a number of entrepreneurs started commercial coffee farms and as a result promising progress has been achieved in the sector. Now a day’s globally coffee production and supply is dramatically increasing at international market which leads to high competition. As a result the market demands for high quality coffee. The country has all the potential of meeting the world niche market as most of its product is shaded (for green movements) organic for those that are keen in taking organic products and fair trade coffee that has to be fought for branding.
