“Our aim has always been to help raise the industry to the next level. Nairobi has to be on par with the major cities around the world.

Competition is great, improves product offerings and ultimately leads to a consistent and more affordable supply chain.

We wish to see more Kenyans being able to experience different types of food & drink.
