Macadamia is a core strategic crop at Kakuzi PLC, and as at 2020, macadamia trees occupied 1,032 hectares. Total volumes are planned to rise by 139 percent by the year 2025. At Kakuzi, we only process nuts grown in our own orchards.


Kakuzi PLC started farming avocado in 1996, and since then, production has increased year-on-year to 794 hectares in 2020. The farm is Rainforest Alliance accredited and there is full control over the entire value chain ensuring complete traceability and high quality produce.

Commercial Forestry

Commercial tree planting started in 1992 and gained momentum in 1995. Presently, Kakuzi has over 1,500 hectares of commercial forest. The forest supplies posts, poles, fuel wood and other timbre products.

Livestock & Butchery

There are 4,387 cattle all ranched within Kakuzi PLC. Some 70-75 bulls and 180-220 breeding cows as well as two small dairy ranches. The slaughterhouse supplies meat to the butchery and local markets for sale.


A 10 hectare site at Kakuzi has been established with plans to expand it in the future. The first blueberry harvest was in 2019. The production is Global G.A.P., GRASP and SMETA certified.


Kakuzi’s tea is grown at Kaboswa Tea Estate in Nandi Hills.
