Timor-Leste Milling Assessment

Currently the only commercially operating mills in Timor-Leste are those used by the coffee growing cooperatives. Some small scale rice mills can be found, however they have a very limited production capacity serving family requirements at a village level.

Milling Company: Timor Global

WFP Locally Adapted Fortified Food Production Project

WFP is currently in the process of developing a local milling and food fortification plant with Timorese partners (Timor Global (TL) PTE Ltd) in Dili. This factory is expected to produce 2,500 MT of fortified blended foods per year having a production capacity of 500Kg per hour.
This should generate an annual income of 1.2 million USD for local farmers at a cost which is competitive with imported products, production is due to start in early 2010.
