We have two products aimed at availing first mile cold storage services to small holder farmers and Aggregators / Distributors.
SokoFresh hubs in rural areas are central locations where participating farmers can aggregate their produce at the cold storages. The hubs are run by a team of SokoFresh Staff who ensure high standards of food safety and processional harvesting practices are maintained
SokoFresh exists to serve thousands of smallholder farmers like you. As a smallholder farmer or a farmer group you can register with SokoFresh and access our 2 in one bundled service. The service provides a full farm to market solution that includes the following;
SokoFresh charges an access fee for the service and often you as the farmer will realize a net income increase of 20% - 40% per trade.
Register at the SokoFresh Hub closest to you. We have hubs in Murang’a, Garissa, Makueni, Meru, Tharaka Nithi, Kiambu and Bomet Counties. We are coming to a rural town near you as we scale up.
SMEs that work with outgrower farmers in rural regions are able to leverage on SokoFresh’s Rental Service to provide the most ideal aggregation infrastructure for vegetables and herbs.
We offer a flexible rental service and we deploy the solar powered cold storages to very remote regions in a few days. No grid connection is needed thus saving our clients from huge power bills
