The company gets its produce from its own five farms located in different regions of the country at different altitudes. This ensures that we are able to grow different products all year around.
In addition the company also subcontracts small scale farmers to supplement the production from the farms. Wamu organizes the out growers into synergetic groups which we then support by supplying them with inputs on credit and on subsidized prices, technical assistance on safe use of pesticides and environment protection, and regular trainings on emerging farming trends. Our out-growers are closely supervised to ensure that they adhere to the set out standards.
As a company policy, all the farms and the out growers are Global gap certified and are continuously trained. All the farms adhere to sound environmental farming practices and are under irrigation, meaning that production can be carried out throughout the year, in response to market demand.
The production is overseen by a technical team headed which oversees the entire end to end process. Further, the company receives a lot of technical support from external organizations on an on-going basis.
Wamu has the capacity to greatly increase its current volumes and is actively seeking new markets to expand into.
