INSTANT® flour

We produce the widely renowned Instant® flour from quality maize carefully selected from our farmers. The concept of instant foods was conceived from three facts that:

  1. Conventional meals take long to cook  in a rapidly growing economy where people have much less time for household culinary chores,
  2. Burdensome energy cost due to skyrocketing wood and charcoal prices... that will quickly be unaffordable to many households/ institutions,
  3. Alarming deforestation rate due to increasingly lucrative charcoal and wood fuel trade.

Traditional maize meal (posho) requires over 30 minutes of cooking and porridge a lot more, impressing a considerable energy (firewood, charcoal, electricity) demand on consumers and drudgery (including exposure to smoke) on culinary staff or  women and girl-child who prepare family meals.

Conversely, instant flour has merits below:

  • Instant cooking within only 3 minutes.
  • Long shelf life of over 6 months because steaming and kilning at high temperatures during production process strongly reduce microbiological counts,
  • No change in taste! Same texture, elasticity and mouth feel as meals prepared from conventional maize flour.

The socio-environmental benefits are immense, and these are:

  • Energy Savings: Significant reduction in cooking time saves energy and reduces socio-environmental burdens of deforestation or prolonged exposure of women and girls to indoor emissions in kitchens.
  • Enhanced Food Safety: The shelf life of instant flour is more than 6 months because steaming and kilning at high temperatures during production reduces microbiological counts to negligible levels unlike in conventional flour.
  • Nutrition: There are opportunities for fortification with a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals during production to the health benefit of consumers.

Instant flour is a wise choice for environment and cost-sensitive consumers such as:

  • Homes
  • Schools/ Training institutions
  • Police/ military/ prisons
  • Emergency operations
  • Refugee settlements
