Our producer‘s plantation contains 8,5 ha and has 13.500 Moringa trees. The trunks are cut back as soon as a tree has reached 1.70 m. The cut branches are transported to a storage house on the farm where the leaves are carefully removed and then spread out to dry in a nearby dark room.
As soon as the moisture is out of the leaves, they can then go into a drying room where they are dried at a constant temperature of 38°C until the residual moisture is 6 % max, during which time the leaves are regularly turned over to enable equal and better drying. Moringa leaves are checked by hand at the beginning and with a metal detector at the end for the presence of any foreign bodies.
The dried leaves are finally put by the producer into suitable sacks and moved to a protected storage area after being given a batch number. When all the documentation is completed they are exported to Europe. The leaves are then microbiolgoically examined for heavy metals and pesticides and then pulverised to a fine powder using a special mill.
We buy our raw products direct from the producers, pay fair prices and support the farmers.
