Kentegra Biotechnology contracts smallholder farmers to revitalize the pyrethrum sector in Kenya to manufacture a natural active ingredient for the insecticide and pesticide industry internationally.

Market Opportunity/ Problem

Kenyan government stability, recent deregulation, and incentives for foreign investment have created an opportunity to revitalize an industry that supplied what was once the third-largest export in Kenya (behind coffee and tea). With the end of the failed government-owned pyrethrin enterprise, experienced farmers are eager to supply raw material to more reliable and consistent private sector buyers.
