OUR UNIQUE OFFERING
We provide international food and beverage companies in Europe with Gum Arabic variety that is only available in Kenya, parts of Ethiopia and Somaliland. This variety has high viscosity, making it uniquely suited for its application in food and beverages. We have unique partnerships with the Kenya Forest Service and the Kenya Forestry Research Institute which gives Acacia EPZ unique access to chemical analysis, quality assurance and access to community lands for sourcing. This provides our European based clients with peace of mind with regards to supply stability, product traceability and quality.
Further, the organic nature of Gum Arabic means that clean labelling trend among European consumers gives suppliers of natural Gum Arabic like us a competitive advantage over suppliers of synthetic thickeners with less appealing names. Our second segment is local and regional customers who use our grade 2 Gum Arabic for binding applications. Our Grade 2 Gum Arabic is used by Women Groups in the making of briquettes. We sell the material to the groups at cost. Our competitive advantage is first mover advantage, product expertise, market intelligence and local and international industry networks.
Acacia trees have a very positive impact on the environment. The trees act as a barrier to desertification while nourishing soils, making them more fertile, fostering intercropping and stabilizing rainfall cycles. In addition, acacias supply forage and shade for cattle, offer a genuine home to several bird species and are generally a supportive environment for biodiversity.
