  • Aflakiosk is a mobile laboratory that provides quality testing services to all maize markets and suppliers in the country.
  • Aflakiosk is a fast, affordable, accurate, and free way to measure maize quality including quantitative levels of aflatoxin.

What We Do

  • We allow traders and farmers to determine the quality of their grain and potentially access premium markets where prices are higher.
  • Aflakiosk serves mainly in reducing consumption of aflatoxin-contaminated maize products affecting humans and livestock.
  • Aflakiosk puts in place a consistent supply of safe and affordable raw materials to food processing businesses while increasing the quantities of maize managed and stored under best practices.
  • By reconnecting maize to higher-value buyers, Aflakiosk helps improve market reliability, reduce costly imports, and incentive greater investments in the maize value chain, from yield improvement to production of new and nutritious maize-based food products
