Nuru Social Enterprises
East Africa Accelerator
in partnership with Acumen
Produces and sells Nuru Yogurt, supporting Kenyan smallholder farmers to enhance milk production
Nuru Social Enterprises is a for-profit social impact initiative in Kenya. Its mission is to serve as the commercial market conduit producing value-added dairy products that are inclusive of local, smallholder dairy producers. The primary objective is to ensure the farmers have a reliable counterparty in the value chain to purchase their milk at fair and attractive market prices.
Nuru Social Enterprises purchases milk from local farmers and then processes, packages, markets and sells branded yoghurt to small shops and larger retail supermarkets. The higher margin facilitates profit margins necessary to ensure the ongoing sustainability of the enterprise and reinvestment back into the community.

We have a new product born out of the accelerator and a clear partway of diversified revenue streams as well as scaling to newer markets.
