Traditional grain, sorghum and millet preferred to maize

Brewers in the East African region are moving from use of barley for brewing to use of Sorghum. In Tanzania, local breweries have been buying sorghum from farmers there while a new entrant has entered that market. In the final part of his series, NTV’s Dan Mwangi tells the story of how East African Breweries is making the shift to use of sorghum. Given its huge demand for sorghum, vis-à-vis the little supply, the firm has crossed the border in search for the grain.

Title yako misleading,should read Barley not Wheat. Sorghum na millet ni mazao yanayo himili ukame na hayahitaji mbolea ya viwandani,hii ni habari njema wa wakulima hasa waliopo marginal areas.
