Short Summary

I started my business 6 months ago in partnership with a Nutritional Manufacturer in South Africa. We are their distributor of Organic  fortified milk powders including Soy and Rice Milk, and pre-cooked fortified porridge's for management of malnutrition, HIV/TB Patients and a source of both Macro and Micronutrients for children Pregnant and lactating Mothers,elderly and those convalescing in Kenya and the larger East African Region.
We currently have seen interest grow in our products from Hospitals,Humanitarian Agencies, ad individual clients as a result of the quality and the health benefits of Macro and Micro-Nutrients in the products especially for those whose immune systems have been severely weakened.

We run a campaign before (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-nutritional-foods-business-expand/x/5714551) and with the help of individuals and family members were able to raise money that have seen us design and re-brand our products for the Kenya Market. For those who contributed we say Thank You and your contribution definitely made a difference to our business. Now i ask your support to purchase one packing machine to start us out.


What We Need & What You Get

To be able to make the difference and avail the supplements to our customers we need to buy our own automatic packing machine as we currently are outsourcing. To get a machine we will need usd 10,000 that will be able to repack at least 250 cartons a day of the bulk products.

If we do not reach our entire goal the monies will be paid as deposit and we will find a way of borrowing the difference and pay back over a year or two. However should we exceed our target then we will put all the surplus into the second machine that we also very much require.

We may not have the big perks to give you but we will appreciate your contribution through 

  • Personalized Thank You notes from all our staff and more so a special message from new staff recruited to operate the machine
  • Recognition on our website  
  • Social media pages
  • Sed you a packet of Kenyan Tea or Coffee

The Impact

The products that we are selibg especially the pre-cooked porridges are unique to the East African Region due to the MACRO/Micro Nutrients and the Nutritional value per each indiidual serving.

Providing these at a lower cost as a result of our own low production costs will make the same available to a wide array of those who need the Nutrients and can not afford.

As a result of takig the products one needs not worry about the NRV they are taking in daily as they all contain the required NRV leading to a healthy population. We also intend to see to it that as a result of our activities, deaths from hunger and malnutrition will be significantly reduced and that children will be able to grow healthy more so in their first two years after birth due to sufficient intake of allt he required Nutrients for  a healthy normal growth.

    Risks & Challenges

    The main Risks and challenges was introducing the products to the market but now that they have been accepted our main challenge is to ensure availability to as wide a customer base as required.
