Arki Agro is a producer and supplier of Ethiopian spice blends to the domestic grocery, out-of-home, specialized retail, and hospitality sectors.

Market Opportunity/ Problem

Ethiopian consumers lack access to domestically sourced and processed food products that are nutritious, food-grade packaged, have a long shelf life, and are ready to eat. In particular, with the lifestyles of urban consumers making traditional food more difficult to prepare, there is an opportunity to present the market with ready-to-eat processed food, which creates opportunities for smallholder farmers to be part of a domestic supply chain to a predictable market.
