“So it’s like HelloFresh for Nairobi? Or maybe Uber for fruits and vegetables?”
“Got it. Amazon Prime for bananas?”
Yes, like Hello Fresh, Twiga delivers fresh, high-quality produce directly to its customers.

This Nairobi-based startup is navigating uncharted territory to transform supply chains in Africa’s informal markets.
