Wamu Investments is an indigenous private company founded in 1989 that produces and exports fresh fruits and vegetables to Europe and the Middle East. It is registered by the Horticultural Crop Development Authority of Kenya and is a member of the Fresh Produce Association of Kenya among others.
The company gets its produce from its own five farms located in different regions of the country at different altitudes. This ensures that we are able to grow different products all year around.
In addition the company also subcontracts small scale farmers to supplement the production from the farms. Wamu organizes the out growers into synergetic groups which we then support by supplying them with inputs on credit and on subsidized prices, technical assistance on safe use of pesticides and environment protection, and regular trainings on emerging farming trends. Our out-growers are closely supervised to ensure that they adhere to the set out standards.
As a company policy, all the farms and the out growers are Global gap certified and are continuously trained. All the farms adhere to sound environmental farming practices and are under irrigation, meaning that production can be carried out throughout the year, in response to market demand.
Wamu has the capacity to greatly increase its current volumes and is actively seeking new markets to expand into.
