"Kenya: "Agribusiness can be “green” gold"
"These two key factors motivated us to establish Tymax," explains Mr Kariuki. "We believe if these opportunities are well utilized millions of people will have consistent, safe food supply, jobs and would be able to accumulate wealth. In our view agribusiness can be “green” gold if professionally managed and by being patient."
Tymax offers agribusiness consultancy, training and management services. The company focuses on the whole value chain: raw material production, post harvest handling & processing, logistics, markets, support services such as finance, human resources & procurement. The team is made up of specialists with years of experience in Agribusiness value chain.
Tymax Agribusiness Solutions aims to be a global leader in the provision of agribusiness services that will enable millions of people to bridge the gap between poverty and wealth.
"We are committed to enhancing supply of consistent, safe and cheap food, bringing about global food security while taking care of nature. Through innovativeness and use of latest technology we will provide affordable, authentic & quality services."
Years ago most Kenyans viewed agriculture as a job for the old people. However, in the last few years, this notion is changing and young people are now embracing farming. This is expected to help grow the industry. However, the most challenging thing is not having a consistent market which demotivates farmers. This is the reason why Tymax would like to link the farmers with International markets.
Tymax has until now been helping exporters access raw material from Kenyan farmers. However, they now intend to start exporting directly. The products include mangoes, bananas, Paw paw, citrus, sugar snaps, chillies and herbs amongst many others.
The most prominent problems for Kenyan farmers is lack of market information and organised stable markets, the high cost of finance and labour. Infertile soils produce low yields and fertiliser, chemicals and seed is expensive, the farmers also lack technical experience and training. In Kenya infrastructure is also lacking there are minimal goods roads and storage facilities
Tymax aims to offer services to enable the farmers to invest in new technology and how to source it at a minimal cost also to find consistent markets where the produce can be sold.
