He added: “Flour is the most consumed food in Kenya and easily the most important element of our food security quest. Keeping it top of mind among consumers and stakeholders is key and with this new campaign, we are hoping to truly appreciate the Kenyan customer while driving awareness on nutrition. Additionally, this campaign is allowing us to collaborate much more with our strategic retail partners as we seek to expand our markets,”

According to Marketreserarch.com, the Kenyan maize and wheat flour market showed strong growth (CAGR of 7.3%) over the past 5 years reaching a market value of $1.15 billion by last year, as changing consumer preferences for wheat flour, improving retail accessibility, and increasing market sophistication drive demand. 

“The present opportunity is not only in fulfilling demand but also in new business models that respond to the needs of end-users and vendors alike which delivered through three main ways – the production of high-quality flour, ensuring consistencies in quality and distribution and the third in building trust among consumers,” Mr Bajaber said as he launched the campaign.
