The very last stage of Alizetics' businessmodel is selling the sunflowers seeds, cultivated by hundreds of smallholder farmers, to oil processing companies. These companies press the oil out of the seeds to create many litres of sunflower oil for the domestic market. Alizetics contracts large processing companies in Tanzania that have continuous high demand to seeds.
The communities in which Alizetics has its buying centers, we have 24 of them already, benefit from having a reliable party nearby that buys their seeds in a competitive and transparent way. Besides this the buying centers also provide a few jobs as we always need people to assist with packing, weighing and logistics.
