Company Overview

Agrolog Limited is a newly established agribusiness company specialized in production and trade of agricultural commodities, agrologistics, various agricultural investment and farm management. Innovations that assure the delivery of wholesome food to consumers constitute the value proposition which AgroLog brings to its clients. Institutional voids constitute great impediments in food systems, creating chaos and disruptions in the ecosystem.

The desire to address this has taken us back to the fundamentals of food production: THE FARM. AgroLog seeks to entrench a culture of operational excellence that guarantees transparency from farm to table. The primary objective is traceability that ensures the consumer not only know the source but the quality of food on the table. Consequently AgroLog has contrived partnerships through Innovation Platforms (IPs) that bring farmers and investors together enabling ecosystems that allow for backward integration that builds farmers capacities, flow of quality inputs, standardization of practices that ensure high productivity and quality outputs.

On the forward integration front we work with partner clusters to achieve best practices in postharvest handling that deliver quality to the table. Our initial focus is on vegetables but our network is growing to include commodities across the spectrum of agribusines
