Some of our major

Projects

Transforming the lives of Kenyan farmers is our core mandate.

We believe that lasting impact happens when every link with the different agricultural value chains are strengthened.

We partner with all the key agricultural players to strengthen farmer-to-fork agricultural systems. We create linkages to public-private partnerships to facilitate trade and value chain growth. Through this, we ensure that farmers have access to educational materials, quality farm inputs, reliable extension services support and access to market for their produce.

We do so by relying on our agronomic know-how, our over 15 years experience and local insight of the agribusiness space and leverage on the innovatiness, robust data and the cutting-edge technology of our partners.
