Kia Group Agribusiness
Our goal is to develop a competitive processed food, beverage, fiber, forestry and derivative industry that optimally utilizes and develops local and regional resources to supply domestic demand and increase participation in international trade.
This will be achieved by expanding production capacity and promoting value adding expansionary agro processing activities in a manner that fosters economic inclusivity.
The business unit provides support to a wide range of economically viable activities in agro-processing (food and non-food) sectors such as: rice, wheat, poultry and fish farming.
With respect to production we are engaged in vertically integrated agro-processing. We put a lot of emphasis on production to guarantee feedstock quality as a result we ensure that we support our outgrowers with comprehensive extension services.
Our extension services and out grower schemes is one of our major ways of creating sustainable employment opportunities at the local level. Our bespoke PPP Agriculture programme works with governments at the national and sub-national levels to achieve our objectives of massive employment creation and promotion of local content.
KIA invests in fertilizer blending as well, primarily aimed at increased yields in our production centers, outgrower farms as well as to support national input security.
