ENP was founded in 1994, and has grown over the years to occupy a prominent position in the region’s nut sector. The factory facility in Muranga town employs state-of-the-art technology in its operations, allowing for high standards of hygiene and efficiency. The products pass through stringent quality control checks and this has been recognized through the attainment of various globally-recognized certifications such as HACCP and ISO 22000:2005.
Raw nuts used in this production facility are sourced from all over the macadamias growing regions in Kenya, generating income for thousands of small-holder farmers. The company’s subsidiary, Farm Nut Multi-Purpose Co-operative Society Ltd, is engaged in advising, educating and providing farmers with skills, knowledge and inputs relevant for their day-to-day activities. Special emphasis is placed on ensuring all products are grown organically and free of any harmful additives.
A small tree nursery on the outskirts of the town grafts Macadamia trees for replanting in the main growing regions. This nursery has benefitted from research conducted in association with renowned national institutions such as Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) and Horticultural Crops Development Authority (HCDA).
