Tunu Agri Products
Tunu Agriproducts and Consultancy Limited is a registered company with a certificate of incorporation, number 133005. We started to process in the home kitchen in 2017 with one worker (the founder: Dr. Esther M. Nkuba).
The first idea was to process virgin coconut oil (VCO) for home consumption. We found there was high demand for VCO. In 2018, the company started to process spices. Women mainly do sorting of spices and grating coconuts, so our company contributes to the women’s economy. Unlike other companies, our company also provides nutrition education to communities. Our goal is to reach regional networking, marketing and information sharing in the sub-industry of spices to contribute to the agricultural transformation for better livelihoods. Our purpose is to enhance farmers’ access to the market and provide employment to women and youth.
Our team comprises a managing director (Dr. Esther Nkuba), deputy managing director and production and processing director (Dr. Jackson Nkuba), quality control manager (Emiliana Mesenga), marketing and partnership director (Grace Patric Udoba), administration and finance director (Gloria Jackson Nkuba) and other employees.
The company also process and packs virgin coconut oil under hygienic conditions. The company believes in building a solid relationship with the suppliers of raw materials, which are farmers. Thus, our company is a member of the Tanzania Horticultural Association (TAHA) and Tanzania Spice Association (TASPA); these associations help us ensure quality spices from farmers. The company provides solutions for smallholder farmers who are constrained by limited market access and processing technologies. Tunu spices are carefully cleaned, sorted, dried and packed under hygienic conditions to meet our clients’ needs. Our spices taste natural with a unique aroma. The mixed masala is blended to achieve a unique aroma that enhances the taste of your food.
The company deals with the exportation of the following raw whole spices: cinnamon, clove, cardamom, ginger, turmeric, coriander and black pepper.
