Commodity Exchange Ltd – Technical Expert on Spice

Commodity Exchange Ltd


Terms of Reference

Technical expert on spice growing, harvesting and drying practices to produce export-quality spices


Position Title: Technical Expert on Spice

Contract Duration: 6 months divided in two phases (3 months each phase) Reports to: Managing Director of CE Ltd.

Location: Aileu, Ermera, Liquica, and Same municipality.



Commodity Exchange Limited (CE Ltd.) is a subsidiary of SM Bark Technology, one of the largest importers and distributor of selected electronic products in Timor-Leste. Given the growing opportunities in agribusiness in the country CE Ltd has been set up with an aim to diversify  into  food  processing,  using  local  raw  materials,  for  the  domestic  and  export market. The company has recently set up a facility for processing a variety of spices such as cloves, black pepper and cinnamon, sourced from a number of locations across Timor-Leste, largely for export.


Spices such as black pepper, cloves and cinnamon were historically introduced during the Portuguese period in Timor-Leste, however, loss of intermediaries and trade structures during the war resulted in a disconnect of between producers and end market and farmers never regained confidence in investing in the maintenance of the spice plants in the absence of a market to sell to. Majority of the spices are now grown wildly in the backyards of farmers’ homestead or adjacent to coffee farms and are mostly managed by female members   of   the   household.   Female   farmers   lack   the   knowledge   on   production, maintenance, harvest and post-harvest handling which affects the quality of spices collected and is often wasted at the farms without being able to realise the full market potential.


To realise the market potential of spices grown in Timor, CE is investing in its supply chain and to ensure sufficient volume of consistent supply of good quality spices the company plans  to  build  a  strong  network  of  trained  suppliers.  Thus  Commodity  Exchange  with support from the Market Development Facility- a private sector development program supported by the Australian Government, is seeking a consultant who is capable of training farmers on spice production, harvesting and post-harvest management (including drying and grading). The consultant is expected to assess current practices at the farm level as well as the CE facility level in order to be able to develop a first-hand understanding of the underlying issues and address them in accordance to the business needs of CE.



The broad objective of this ToR is to identify and select a consultant to introduce best practices and recommendations to spice farmers supplying a variety of spices (clove, black pepper and cinnamon) to CE. In addition to training farmers on improved production, harvesting, maintenance and post-harvest management the consultant is expected explore a few more varieties of locally grown spices that has the potential to be processed and sold in the local and export market.
