There is little evidence regarding the importance of beeswax as an article of commerce in pre-German times (before 1885), although it is clear that the Portuguese traded in beeswax with people along the East African coast. The trade was improved by the Germans, who found that Tanganyika was an important source of beeswax. In order to upgrade its quality for use in their refining industry, they put much effort into teaching honey hunters and beekeepers how to render beeswax into clean cakes, and this led to the achievement of a high quality product.
