Although Kenya is known for its rich soils and excellent agricultural climate, the country does not have a very long history when it comes to avocado production. As demand for organic fruits and vegetables and in particular avocado’s continues to rise, more growers are choosing to grow these delicious fruits. The growers we work with intercrop the avo’s with papaya, corn, banana, macadamia nuts and coffee ensuring a rich soil and a wide variety of flora and fauna.
At Mavuno Organic we ensure that the growers are well rewarded for producing premium organic fruit. This means that they now receive almost three times more money for their fruit compared to their conventional neighbours. These contracts ensure the farmers cannot only invest in the future of their children but also improving the quality of their orchards. Through close communication, mentorship and technical assistance in the field we are able to bring the quality of our Hass avocado’s to an even higher level.
