About FreshBox Enterprises Limited

The problem we're solving

Post-harvest losses: Over 40% of fresh produce is spoiled from the point of harvest to consumption. The loss of produce results in the unavailability of nutritious foods and loss of income for small-scale farmers and market vendors.

Our solution

We use locally available components to manufacture and install solar-powered cold storage units which are used by fresh produce farmers, vendors, and aggregators in the different points of the food supply chain. WOur model involves charging for only use of our cold storage chambers making our solution affordable to farmers and vendors in low income areas.

Our differentiator

By manufacturing the units locally, we are able to lower the total unit cost by up to 50% compared to other available options, this makes our solution affordable to the end user. We also offer our solutions as a service making us the service provider than just selling the cold storage units.

Biggest achievement

Over the last 3 years of operation, we have been able to serve over 2,000 fresh produce farmers and market vendors improving their livelihoods as well as increasing their business income by up to 50% and at the same time saving over 1,700 tonnes of food that would have been spoilt. We have also worked in partnership with reputable organizations including The Univesity of Nairobi and the UN - World Food Program.
