Origen Fresh was founded in 2017 by 2 young entrepreneurs who wanted to make a difference in the agricultural sector having worked in the sector in Kenya and across East Africa for more than 7 years. It didn’t take them long to realize that smallholder farmers were the most affected by the high post harvest loss and wastage as well as price exploitation by middlemen. Being farmers themselves, they experienced the same level of frustration. they knew they had to change the story.
To protect small holder farmers, Origen Fresh was formed and began by providing modern agricultural machinery services to small holder farmers to enable them to increase their yield and produce healthy and nutritious foods. However, Lack of a consistent and reliable market was still a challenge. The team then decided to process one of the most popular grown products in Kenya and grown by over 80% of small holder farmers and whose post harvest loss is at 40%- 45% of the total annual production.
Under the guidance and leadership of their board chair, the team has grown from 2 employees to 60 employees purchasing avocado from over 50,000 farmers producing oil under globally accepted standards allowing it to be sold across the world.
Ours is a commitment to transform farmers and the environment in which they exist in, our employees, our surrounding and benefit the society at large.
