Pioneering a new cash crop and agribusiness industry

We make biofuel, animal feed and organic fertiliser from the nut of the croton megalocarpus tree; one of the most prominent indigenous species across eight countries of Africa’s Great Rift Valley.

The croton tree is used as a shamba (farm) hedge for shading and to produce quality firewood or charcoal.

From pre-existing trees, Kenya produces more croton each year than 150,000 farmers produce coffee for export.

Renewable Feedstock

Croton trees produce nuts for six months each year. Nuts fall to the ground when they are mature ensuring a simple, sustainable harvest.

Community Engagement

Farmer groups work together to aggregate local supply, which EFK then purchases; shifting this wasted resource into a dependable cash crop.

In-Demand Products

Zero-waste manufacturing produces energy and agriculture inputs for local SME’s, lowering their input cost and reducing their carbon footprints.
