Maize:Venturing in business is not everyone’s cup and tea save for one individual who chose to be based in Trans Nzoia and get his daily slice of the bread
Back in September of 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, one Mathew Mwangi Mahia saw it fit to venture in maize milling, a front that he says was a long time in coming.
Having been a maize trader for some time now, he says he was rightly suited and had the connect to have a steady supply or material.
“I started working with farmers, buying and selling maize from them.This was a good background in which I saw as a way of getting the resources I much needed,” said Mr Mwangi.
His milling factory called Mamu Maize Millers Ltd situated in a small roadside stop over calle Simatwet has grown in leaps and bounds and is currently a major player maize meal supply in North Rift region.
However, all seems not rosy for the proprietor who says the downsides he has faced have largely been on the marketing of the products.
“I have the products on the shelves of supermarkets and stores but Kenyans are yet to fully embrace Mamu and that is what I want to change as this is a good meal flour that anyone can and should enjoy,” said Mwangi, Mamu Mills Ltd.
