Ginger Trading

Batch: 25 January 2020

Your Ginger rhizomes were sourced from a reputable farm in the Southern Kaduna axis of Kaduna State. The rhizomes were checked for impurities and sorted according to sizes and quality before they were repackaged and sold at the market.

Health benefits of ginger:

  1. Owing to its high nature in gingerol, it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidants 
  2. 1-1.5 grams of ginger can help prevent any type of nausea

A Tale of Three Spices

Batch: 16 March 2020

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

Sourced Sun-Dried onions were cleaned to remove dirt and then fed into the milling machine to produce onion powder, which was packaged and sold at the local market.

Beef Processing & Trading

Title: Processing of Trotters and Hide

Batch: 17 March 2020

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 the 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 it, is rich in protein like any other meat and is used in recipes to make delicacies.

Beef Processing & Trading

Title:  Minced Beef and Sausage Production

Batch: 9th April

We just concluded the processing of beef into Minced beef and Sausage.

Minced Beef is finely chopped meat and Sausage is gotten from further processing of the minced beef.

The process starts with the introduction of beef through the feeder of the Mincer or a grinding machine. The Mincer or grinding machine has sharp knives that have been attached to the shaft and through a circular motion, the knives finely chop the beef to produce the minced beef which was packaged and stored in a cold room with a reading temperature of -10 degrees.

Sausages were produced by further processing of the beef, mixing with some ingredients then passed to another machine for stuffing and casing.

See the process flow for both processes below.

Fresh Produce Trading

Batch: 27 March 2020

We continued to use your sponsorship to procure food produce from farmers and local markets and make them readily available for convenient purchase and delivery via our Farmcrowdy Foods app. This, for us, goes a long way in reducing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic as it removes the need to physically go to open markets for our customers.

The fresh produce currently being sold on the Farmcrowdy Foods app includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Tomatoes
  • Pepper (Ata Rodo)
  • Bell pepper
  • Rice
  • Beans
  • Yam
  • Groundnut Oil and Palm Oil
  • Fruits

After procurement, the processing team sorts according to customer specifications and then proceeds to package and seal the sorted items using food-grade packaging material for delivery. 

Farmcrowdy Foods
