Producers & Farmers

We are a uniquely modeled food distributor; we do the legwork to bring your local products to wholesale food buyers locally and all across the country.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. We offer you our online platform, distribution infrastructure, and expertise in distributing your products more efficiently to our network of retail stores and buyers. We are a uniquely modeled food distributor
  2. You always know the distribution costs, where it’s being sold and for how much. We are not in the business of buying your product, marking it up, and reselling at a maximum profit. Instead we offer fixed and fair delivery costs to your produce, protein, fish and specialty goods.
  3. We appreciate the role you play in the food chain, so we want to make your economic model more resilient agricultural-specific payments, financial services and insurance contracts.

Distribution

We handle the complexity of managing a large number of small vendors and distribution centers across the country.

Additionally, we offer vendor management, accounts payable, food safety assurance and liability insurance.

HOW IT WORKS

  • We make life easier by using technological innovation (USSD, Web platform & Mobile App) to link up the food chain. Through this, the supply chain benefits from personal service from the producer, distributor, store owner, free home delivery, click and collect, credits and discounts from our prepaid credit cards.
  • We are not in the business of reinventing the wheel, so we partner with – rather than compete against – existing retail stores and open market traders.

We play a wholesaler role so we welcome existing businesses as franchisees under the ‘Pamoja Foods Minimart/Convenience store/grocery stores.

  • We operate a highly efficient wholesale system that serves a network of small urban retail formats that require low capital expenditure.
  • We bridge the proximity to our consumers in space, time & relationship by operating smaller urban formats convenience stores, small stores and grocery stores formats that offer a more realistic prospect of economic returns for the retailer.

The stores serve the urban consumers with limited budgets and smaller homes who often prefer to buy small amounts frequently both for immediate consumption and for stocking up.

  • Productivity in our operations starts with logistics network operations driven by local demand attractiveness. High density deliveries from our distribution centers to a cluster of stores creates efficiency
