A Tale of Three Spices

Batch: 9th March

TRADING

Ginger and turmeric are from the Zingiberaceae family and are rhizomes. They are known as the dynamic pain fighting duo. 

The ginger and turmeric procured were cultivated through organic farming. (Organic farming is a holistic production management system which promotes and enhances agro-ecosystem health, including biodiversity, biological cycles, and soil biological activity).

The rhizomes were checked for impurities and sorted according to sizes and quality before they were repackaged and sold at the local market.

After sourcing red onions from the farm. The onions were sundried for some days before they were transferred to the milling station. The dried onions were sorted and checked for impurities before being fed into the milling machine to produce Onion powder. The onion powder was then packaged into different product sizes.

Beef Processing

Batch: April/May

Title: Processing of Trotters and Hide

One of the major by-products in beef processing is the offal which can be classified into two namely red offal and green offal. We have just concluded the processing of two popular products among the offal.

After slaughtering, the first step is a process known as skinning. This is the removal of the cowhide in order to facilitate evisceration. The handler, using a sharp knife, cut out the hide in a specific way such that beef is not attached to the hide. The removed cowhide was then conveyed to the Value Addition Departement for a thorough cleaning (removal of hair and washing), size reduction and packaging.

There are numerous uses of cow skin, one of which is our popular pomo. Pomo contrary to many opinions has some nutritional properties. Cowhide is also used in the leather industry. The collagen used in making casing for finger sausage is gotten from the protein found in  cowhide

In addition, we also processed the cow trotters popularly known as bokoto. Bokoto, as we call, are rich in protein like any other meat and are used in recipes to make delicacies. The marrow in it has been known to give strength to both men and women.
