Organi Limited (K), is a joint-venture company between Organi Limited & Homa Bay county government. It is a value chain processor of provitamin-A rich, Orange Flesh Sweet Potatoe (OFSP) into varous food products such as sweet potatoe flour, composite bakery, porridge, confectionaries, starch frozen sweet potato root. We are now venturing into sweet potato puree production.Organi Limited (K) was recently selected for a business partnership with the Internation Potatoe Center (CIP) to expand product offerring in order to supply Tuskys, a major grocery chain in East Africa with orange fleshed sweet potatoe puree. Organi Limited (K) is a very excited this new venture and opportunity. We are already undertaking a major capital equipment investment for the Ringa based plant in Homabay County that will accomodate a phsed high quality sweet potatoe puree production. We partner with CIP to help mobilize farmers to ensure sustainable supply of the raw materials and also to help provide technical support for the establishment of sweet potatoe puree processing plant.
Since we started doing sweet potatoe planting on a major scale, we have seen a tremendous growth in our household income, and children are able to go to secondary school with tuition paid for with the money we receive from potatoe farming.
As a farmer, I am very assured of the future of my crops now that we have a sweet potatoe factory to consume the product. It has been a big help in ensuring steady stream of income. We are also proud to see our products sold in a major super market, Tuskys. That is an indication of popularity of the product and also means money in our pockets.
We are staged for greater things to come and tooling for a major expansion in the very new future, now that the product is going to be expanded to more and by-products. The future now looks certain and is brighter than ever. With the household income increased, we see better and bigger than ever opportunities.
I must say that we are very lucky to be able to live off the land. Our potatoe crops have made it possible to have something to look forward to, something which for a long time have really elluded us as small farmers in this part of the contry.
With the animals and birds we rear, we get milk, and meat. Now with the potatoe farming taking a foot hold, we can now be assured of making the ends meet. We receive a paycheck based on the quantity we take for sale in the potatoe market. My husband and i can now be assured of taking our children to secondary schools and even college off the money we earn as potatoe farmers. Life has really changed for the better and standards of living are definitely been different now. We thank dear Lord, the church tithe is also assured better than before.
