Stawi Foods and Fruits Limited is a Kenyan-based consumer packaged goods company specializing in providing nutritious and great tasting composite porridge flour blends to Kenyan families. Our products are precooked, convenient, safe and affordable.
Stawi LTDs’ business began with processing bananas into flour. It evolved to processing various pre-cooked porridge flour blends, which incorporate multiple grains, including sorghum as substrates, to our expanded market offering. The company, which commenced operations in 2012, is located in Nairobi’s Roysambu area, from where it mills, packages and distributes its porridge flour products. Founded by Eric Muthomi, a young Kenyan entrepreneur who had the vision to create an enterprise that not only contributes towards the development of Kenya’s smallholder farmers, Stawi LTD also provides quality, nutritious foods to the general public at an affordable price.

Impact

 
Stawi’s measures its impact in these main buckets:
 
 
 
 

Number of meals distributed

 
 
 
 
 
 

Number of employees hired

 
 
 
 
 
 

Number of children reached

 
 
 
 
 
 

Number of farmers reached

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

More specifically, Stawi is working to achieve these impact points:

 
  • Provision of higher yielding improved and drought tolerant sorghum seed varieties to 5,000 smallholder farmers to boost productivity.
  • Access to climate smart inputs/services such as organic fertilizer, soil testing services, soil conditioners and climate smart practices such as mulching, cover crops, rotational planting/farming and post-harvest handling care.
  • Increased yield of sorghum from 500 kg per acre to 8- 15 tonnes per acre for each season. It is important to note that many farmers grow sorghum with other crops such as maize, cowpeas, beans and pigeon peas. The business case will strive to incentivise farmers to grow sorghum on 70% of their farms.
  • Offer value added services across the value chain by partnering with financial services providers to facilitate access to seed (input) loans, working capital for micro distributors and access to financial services such as insurance. Our embedded service model will also provide weather information to farmers through ICT-based mechanisms.
  • Creation of direct links between farmers and input providers to reduce input prices and ensure no counterfeiting by unscrupulous traders.
  • 300% per annum increase in sorghum yields over five years
