The home of world renowned nuts and avocado
Farmgate World is Owned by Mahomed and Sharif Jassat. We are Australian Citizens but were both born in Zimbabwe. Although we have spent a considerable time in Australia we have always had our business interests in Zimbabwe & the Rest of Africa. We have a lot of experience in Trading in Africa but we consider Zimbabwe our home, and believe our knowledge of the Agricultural Industry in Zimbabwe is key in our latest project. Mahomed was voted Business man of the Year In Zimbabwe and is Testimony to the Influence we have in The Business World In Zimbabwe. Apart from Zimbabwe we have Business interests in the agricultural sectors of Kenya , Rwanda and South Africa.
To accommodate our future business growth, we have recently signed an MOU with the government of Rwanda to jointly plant Macadamia Trees. In the East African region of Kenya & Tanzania, we have entered into agreements with local farmers’ cooperative unions to ensure a steady supply of raw nuts at fair and competitive prices. Our company is committed to Fair Trade and will register as Fair Trade agents in Zimbabwe. Given the success of this project we intend to use the same model to grow and process Cashew nuts and Macadamia nuts in Zimbabwe. Our core business is dealing in processed nuts both raw and value-added varieties such as roasted and salted, honey glazed, honey coated, energy and nut bars.
We are also the market leaders in Macadamia and Cashew Paste/Oil in East Africa. We have recently begun identifying opportunities in Zimbabwe and will install and commission a Macadamia and Cashew cracking plant in Chipinge Zimbabwe. Operations will commence in February 2020 and we will be the only company in Zimbabwe to process Cashew Kernel and Macadamia Kernel in commercial quantities for the export market. We will strive to be FSSC certified by the time operations commence in late 2020. In addition to cracking and processing of Macadamia nuts and Cashew nuts we will also begin by exporting Macadamia Nut in Shell.
