Since 2002 significant results have been achieved by the founders of Millets Place in breeding and selection of the best teff grain varieties (indicated as MP-teff®) and agriculture of MP-teff® in The Netherlands and several other countries all over the world. Due to the team’s broad experience and thanks to frequent research projects (in cooperation with Dutch universities and knowledge institutes) much knowhow has been developed about MP-teff® in agriculture, food applications and nutritional value.
Two things set us apart from our competition: Our own, protected strains of the product and our complete control over the chain from agriculture to cleaning and transport.
Millets Place has the rights to exclusive use of a number of unique teff grain varieties (indicated as MP-teff®). Many years of development by multiple experts in the field of grain refinement and food technology led to several high quality teff strains. This is the result of a long-term breeding program by the expert team of agronomists of ProTef, who also belong to the founders of Millets Place BV. It is an on-going project, always aiming to improve the teff quality as a raw material for food applications. It currently concerns the varieties Ayana, Tesfaya, Adina and Veronica. MP-Teff provides customers with two major advantages: 1) Superior nutritional value. 2) Improved food application properties for its use in baking, cooking and other value-adding processes.
We have complete control over our supply chain from field to customer.
MP-Teff is produced for Millets Place through controlled agriculture by a select group of farmers in several countries. Wherever cultivation takes place, the highest product quality is always guaranteed. By geographically spreading the cultivation, the risk on crop failure is minimized and production volume can be optimally and adequately attuned to market needs.
2. Hulling, milling and cleaning
After harvest of the teff grain, Millets Place outsources the subsequent steps in the production chain to expert contracting partners in Europe working under certified food quality procedures (HACCP, BRC, ISO). Our partners use modern and sophisticated cleaning and screening techniques with the most up-to- date equipment to ensure a purity of more than 99.5%. Our whole process has received food accredited certification (FSSC22000). This ensures our customers a timely, well-cleaned delivery of the highest quality teff anywhere in the world.
Our teff can be delivered worldwide in a timely manner.
