TWIGA is a fast moving consumer goods company based in Nairobi, Kenya, whose primary business is the supply and distribution of fruits and vegetables to small and medium size urban retailers, ranging from small convenience stores (dukas) and kiosks to street-side table tops and shop carts.

Twiga uses a holistic, integrated approach with a focus on supportive technology to cut bottlenecks in the traditional domestic fruit and vegetable supply chain in order to deliver better goods at lower prices directly to vendors in Africa’s urban markets.

Twiga’s efficient logistics and operations as well as its use of cold storage improves food security, increases product quality and lowers prices. Also, the direct delivery saves time, hassle and costs as retailers are relieved of 5am trips to the wholesale market to source the day’s produce.

Twiga also adds impact to other stakeholders along the value chain, e.g. offering farmers agronomy advice and fixed pricing, and in the future offering an efficient distribution channel for other FMCG producers
