Winnie here, CEO, Her Kitchn, www.herkitchn.com
As a young girl, I loved cooking and the passion for cooking led me to starting a food processing company...but before then, here is my story...
I am a former banker with 5 years experience in product development, business strategy and IT systems with a background in Actuarial Sciences and some bit of accounting.
I have always wanted to own my very own business so in 2016, I took a big step to start a fashion business. I quickly realized fashion was all well and good if I was doing it for myself and not for commerical purposes. Stuck in a rut, with no money, but needing to survive in Nairobi, Her Kitchn was born!
With only 10USD, I successfully build my company to where we are right now! How we started
We are a woman led natural sauce and paste company and get our veggie produce from local small scale farmers. Our vision is to be a prevalent household item in Kenya and thereafter Africa! We are dreaming big!
So what makes us different?
- Top quality products made from tested home recipes
- Consistent product that maintains integrity of flavor
- Versatile products
We are solving the following consumer frustrations?
- Mainstream products that lack flavor uniqueness
- Lack of 'freshness' of mainstream products
- Lack of easy solutions to preparing home made food
What will the funds used for?
- Getting an idea location which will allow for a production and office area
- Getting our production process in order - prepare for scaling
- Marketing campaigns in order to reach the mass
- Distribution of sauces at a low fee to Rural Kenya
What unique thing will we do?
- We plan to launch a campaign to distribute our top 100% natural sauce that has no additives or preservatives at a low cost to rural Kenya in order to ensure Kenyans have access to affordable healthier alternatives to their meals
- We plan to launch product 'specials' where we will create a buzz around the company by creating limited offer sauce, pastes etc from all over the world. The specials with be specific and time barred.
Please help us fulfill our dreams!
