Business Description

Kitui Enterprise Promotion Company (KEPCo) is a private business founded in 2008 in Kitui County. It is involved in the production and distribution of mango juice, mango flakes, mango powder, and fortified flour.

Problem/Solution

Kitui County is one of the top mango growing counties in Kenya. However, it experiences a challenge in managing post-harvest losses of mangoes due to poor and limited storage facilities, and poor handling procedures. KEPCo therefore mitigates this by working with community based organizations and farmers to add value to the mangoes to elongate their shelf life while diversifying its usage. This ensures that farmers get return on their investment and the problem of post-harvest losses is addressed.

Products/Service

KEPCo uses mango extracts to produce variety of products mainly mango juice, flakes, powder and flour which is fortified and sold to the locals at a competitive price. The products are of high quality, natural (no additives) and very rich in nutrients.

Traction to Date

KEPCo has invested in building a clientele base in Kitui County and other townslike Nairobi and Machakos. Its current annual income is KES. 5,000,000. Further, it has built sufficient social capital working with a network of 800 farmers. It employs 30 people, most of whom are women and youth. Current production capacity is 500 litres of juice per day.
