The milling facility will be capable of producing 300 tonnes per day of flour.
Azania group in Burundi, 100% owned by Tanzanian-based in Tanzania, will begin its final commissioning of its $25 million mill plant in Burundi, next month august 2017. Azania group broke ground on the project in December 2015 and the milling facility will be capable of producing 300 tonnes per day of flour for the lake countries market once fully operational.
According to CEO Mr.Fuad Edha, the first tonnes of wheat for the new facility will be exported from Azania grain bulk one of the biggest grain bulk in Tanzania as part of the largest shipment of western Australian grain ever consigned by Azania group. at 70,000 tonnes, the shipment will carry wheat to a number of Azania mills, by using our own international wheat trucks.
“this will be the first batch of western Australian wheat to be processed at Azania mill in Burundi, which is set for final commissioning at the end of September,” said Mr.Fuad Edha, managing director and chief executive officer (ceo) of Azania group. “We will also be supplying wheat flour to the neighbouring countries like Congo DRC. it is quite an achievement for Azania group, we’re now seeing the benefits of the integration of our network of mills, creating more efficiencies in the supply chain by growing our scale.” All of Azania group shipments from western Australia are sourced exclusively through Azania grain bulk storage and handling systems, Mr Fuad said.
Currently, Azania group has five flour mills with total wheat processing capacity per day of 2,890 tonnes and a total flour output per year of 164,734 tonnes. “this shipment, like all of our shipments from western Australia are solely sourced through the Azania grain bulk storage and handling system,” Mr Fuad said. “it’s great to see so much western Australian grain being exported to our international investment Azania group,” said Mr. FUAD EDHA, CEO OF AZANIA GROUP.
