Frequently Asked Questions
What type of butter, oil and spices do you use to cook food at TAPU’s?
At TAPU’s we use endogenous organic stuff for cooking. We contract out butter from farmers’ cooperatives; and oil from factories that process non-acidic and non-coagulating sunflower oil. Our home-made Ethiopian spices such as pepper (locally known as berberë) are processed at the Balténa department of our company where they are carefully prepared to meet customers’ real taste of Ethiopian traditional flavor. We never use oil that coagulates at room temperature.
How are the prepared foods at your company processed? What kind of packaging devices do you use to pack the food items? For how long do they stay edible? OR, what is the shelf life of your products?
We prepare our traditional foods using standard recipes in a hygienically sound kitchen. For packaging purpose, we use plastic bags and Aluminum foil labeled with ingredients constituting that particular prepared food, company logo, relevant graphics and best before dates. Freshly prepared foods are packed, are then kept in deep fridges, until transported to selling points/stores using ice box/refrigerated van. As all our prepared food products are refrigerated and not kept at room temperature, their shelf life goes up to six months. Deep fridges are important storage requirements for our products.
