Bidco Africa is seeking suppliers of raw materials, such as soya beans and sunflowers, with an increase in demand for oil.
The Thika-based company says it is looking to contract 30,000 metric tons of the products.
High demand for the products has decreased supplies, thus the need to increase production.

“Due to the growing popularity of our brands, we are looking for partners to supply us with 30,000 metric tons of sunflower seeds and Soybeans to support local production of home-grown heart friendly brands like SunGold Lite and Kimbo that have served East African homes to make delicious and tasty meals for decades,” the firm says.
Currently, approximately 25,000 farmers throughout East Africa are supplying soya beans and sunflowers to BIDCO.
“We not only offer local farmers a ready market for their products at competitive market prices; together with our partners, we train, equip and empower small holder farmers with good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) to improve their yields and ultimately assure them of maximum value that puts more money into their pockets.” Bidco added.
