Welcome to Opportunity!

You are invited to participate in a unique investment opportunity to build the first modern Somali flour mill, ama warshada burka/ daqiiqda. The mill has the capacity to process 200 tons of wheat per day and produce more than 48,000 tons of premium quality flour per year. That is 25% of Somaliland's annual flour consumption, enough to feed one million individuals each year. The combined market size of Somaliland and Somalia is 360 million dollars (usd) per year.

A unique opportunity that combines profit, sustainable development and food security in the Somali peninsula. The grain storage facility is located in the coastal town of Berbera to recieve international grain shipments, the Mill at Maroodi Jeex and Grain Cultivation from GabileY, Awdal & Sanaag regions.

This opportunity is for those who share our vision of true economic development and independence in every industrial sector of the economy for the Somali people.

Boodhari mills strategy is to establish sales offices in each of the major towns in Somaliland and Somalia; these are to act as order collection bases by actively conducting daily sales calls and delivering required amount of Boodhari premium flour. Sales distribution lines are via warehouse owners who supply small retail shops or known as cooshad and tukaan locally. The warehouse owners have heard of this project and are keen on getting the rights to distribution as their profit margins will increase and the quality of flour is second to none. If you would like to be considered for distribution rights contact any member of the team on the links of this page.

Food Imports

Somalia and Somaliland nearly spend 360 million dollars (usd) annually on flour consumption. This is a large market and the potential for investors is enormous. The bur/daqiiq is not a luxury item that can be replaced and consumption is guaranteed by all those who are able. This opportunity is for you to consider in participating in this untapped market in agri business.

Oct. 2017 Price Comparison: Boodhari v.s. the Competition

The table illustrates international wheat prices which have been ranging between $170 and $180 per ton for grade #1 black sea wheat. As well as freight, port tariff and wholesale comparison of Boodhari and the competition. Grade #1 wheat has a high a protein content as a result of inputs such as fertilizers and pest control. Horn of Africa imports flour made from Grade #3 which is of the lowest milling quality.

If Boodhari mills was operational today, these would be the numbers the books would reflect. Wholesale price comparison and range of freedom for price movement is much better than the competition. This freedom of movement grants boodhari mills to have and edge in the market and test competition price comfort zones in imports. In this example, Boodhari paid a higher price for better quality grain (grade# 1), while the competition paid lower price for lower quality grain (grade#3). Despite such differences in price, Boodhari far exceeds in return on profit and quality. This is phenomenal for investors once you consider 80% of the cost comes from the grain procurement.

The return on investment in the developed countries is low as a result of economic stagnation, fierce competition within industry, stringent regulation, and lately an investment return of 6% is seen as a stellar performance. Many African countries are joining the emerging markets and that is where the money is flowing into. It is the new frontier and profits are higher for the investor who is willing to take the opportunity. Somaliland and Somalia will enter emerging markets due to their global strategic position, untapped resources, the migration of the diaspora, improving geo-political scene and ease of acquiring education and information.

Hadhwanaag Waraysi

Flour is the central staple diet for all Somalis and is consumed as Anjero or Kimis/Roti (bread). Turkey and India are the major exporters of flour to the mainland. Both countries grow low grade wheat quality arising from lack of inputs such as fertilizers and import wheat to meet international flour standards.

Operational Cost

Annual expense is dominated by wheat purchases at 80%, raw material for flour production. Procurement firms in the international commodities market have been retained to deliver premium quality grain at the Berbera Port.

annual investment return

Boodhari Mills will purchase raw wheat from the international open markets similar to the mills located in Turkey, Oman, Egypt and India. The competition therefore does not have any meaningful edge over the proposed project in securing the raw material. It should be noted that Somaliland has lower labour wages than other international countries and thus reduces the operational cost of running the project. Most importantly the customers deserve quality food products found in the developed countries.

The flour imported from Asia is deficient in many micro nutrients such as Vitamin A (FAO). Most of the western countries have adopted to compensate for this shortcoming and fortify flour with the essential micro nutrients lost during processing. The diet sensitive segments of the population such as young children and pregnant women do not get much nutritional value from the bur. We intend to fortify and add the micro nutrients lost from the germ seed of the wheat during processing.

Wheat Supply and Cultivation

The grain supply in part is from overseas and 25% produced inside Somaliland. Boodhari Mills is currently scouting rich natural organic lands of Somaliland with the intention to enter into cooperative initiatives with local farmers. Boodhari Mills is to provide all the inputs needed for grain cultivation and drought tolerant seeds. The areas that have been identified as wheat belts get approximately 400-800mm of rain annually. This is sufficient for the wheat cultivation, 75% of the world's wheat production ranges in this interval of rainfall (FAO). Most of the wheat will be sourced from the black sea countries and will arrive through the Berbera Port which has sufficient ground transportation to get the wheat from port to the mill.

Wheat purchase and delivery follow specifications that must be adhered to such as moisture level of seed, ergot thresholds (fungus), aggregate foreign material such as debris and rocks found in grains, and the falling number which is an indication of the quality of the anjero or bread it will produce. The region does not have food regulatory framework and Boodhari will use international wheat specifications when procuring desired grain type. We have a working relationship with some of the major global grain distribution and marketing firms with positive feedback and guidance.
