Natureripe Kilimajaro Limited NKL

  • Fruits and Vegetables - Natureripe Kilimanjaro Limited NKLNatureripe Kilimanjaro Limited (NKL) was established in 2000 and focuses on agro processing.

    The company runs a quality fruit seedling nursery with 80% being mango seedlings. NKL operates a mango farm in Mkuranga District, Coast Region. The mangoes are available to local markets as well as external markets. The mangoes produced on this farm have been exported to the Middle East since 2002.

    NKL has also exported dehydrated foods to Oman starting with small quantities and eventually exporting in large quantities. NKL works with small farmers by helping them secure markets for their products by purchasing or selling their produce on agreed commissions to cover marketing and selling costs.

    NKL also specializes in the production of quality nuts, mainly cashew nuts and peanuts and even produces a sweet cashew nut bar snack. NKL products have a backward linkage to farmers as the WW320 cashew nuts purchased are from Uvuki, a cooperative union in Kibaha which is owned by farmers. Instead of exporting raw cashew nuts to other countries, value is added to the nuts in Tanzania through roasting and seasoning which utilizes the local labor force.
