She tells "Before I got a job at The Seed I was a housewife and took care of my six children. We lived on a low income and not in good conditions. I have learned much about food quality since I joined - I even used my knowledge in my own home and are now more conscious about what my kids are eating. "

Ismail Jamais 21 years old and has developed his skills at The Seed;"I used to work to harvest crops. I wanted to make something different, learn new skills and develop myself. When I first came to The Seed, I made the markings on the bags after a few months I was promoted to pack and store . I now account for the registration of the produced bags. I record the number of produced bags and enter this in the system. I am happier and learn more, who knows, maybe I come to stand for a whole department. I am grateful, As the Seed has confidence in me and continue to train me in new skills, such as IT and gives me many opportunities. "

Unfortunately, many high-end markets are unknown with the high quality of Somali Sesame, but this is changing, as SEEDS collaborates with some of the largest import companies by Sesame in Europe. At the present basis, collaborates as SEEDS with 9000-10000 "Out Growers", ie. Manufacturers and suppliers of Sesame in Somalia. A number we expect will increase as we set aside more Somali Sesame in the European market.
The company's export capacity is approx. 740 tonnes a month, but change month to month according to demand, which comes primarily from the EU. However, the production and number of employees are expected to increase twice, once another production unit is installed at the factory. An important part of as SEEDS 'development strategy.
