Nyangorora Banana Processors
Nyangorora Banana Processors works in collaboration with rural banana farmers along the banana value chain. The company has also collaborated with other development partners to make the value chain a success. This includes establishment of collection centres, cold storage facilities, etc.
Market Opportunity/ Problem
Kenya has two peak seasons for banana production. During the peak seasons, farm-gate prices fluctuate from as low as US$3 per bunch weighing approximately 20-22 kg. The same bunch can, however, be sold for US$8-10 in Nairobi. The sale of green and ripe bananas in the city introduce a lot of garbage. Furthermore, there are high post-harvest losses during the peak seasons due to the high perishability of the commodity, poor post-harvest handling and poor road networks, which limit timely market access.
