Millets Place has the rights of exclusive use of a number of unique teff grain varieties (indicated as MP-teff®). This is the result of a long-term breeding program by the expert team of agronomists of the Foundations Share and 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 concerns the varieties Ayana, Tesfaya and Adina (Foundation Share) and the variety Veronica (Foundation ProTef)
MP-teff® grain is produced for Millets Place by a selective group of farmers on a contract basis in The Netherlands and other countries in different world continents. Wherever this cultivation takes place, the highest product quality is always guaranteed. By geographically spread cultivation, the risk on crop failure is minimized and production volume can be optimally and adequately attuned to market needs.
After harvest of the MP-teff® grain, Millets Place is outsourcing the subsequent steps in the production chain to expert contracting partners in Europe working under certified food quality procedures (HACCP, BRC, FSSC22000). These production steps are shown in the next figure.
