Tanuru Farms is an agricultural market development company that works to improve farm productivity, increase agricultural sustainability by modernizing oil crops value chains in Kenya.
Our model employs contract farming as a market access and scale up instrument for small and medium scale farmers in South Rift and Western Kenya. Our vertically integrated business model then links farmers to industrial processors of soybean, sunflower and canola.
Most small-scale farmers in Kenya engage in subsistence farming using outdated techniques leading to low productivity. We are change this by encouraging adoption of modern farming practices and non-traditional cash crops such as soybeans to boost productivity and subsequently raising farmer incomes.
