Facility General Staff - Kakamega
Regen Organics is an industry leader in regenerating agriculture, cities and communities. We implement a circular economy model to sustainably manufacture regenerative insect feed for animals, various organic fertilizers and ecofuels for use in fast growing emerging markets. Our technologies and professional logistics network are developed in-house to safely collect and transport residual organics generated in cities and their environs for upcycling into various regenerative products. We operate the largest organics recycling plant in East Africa. Watch here!
Operational since 2011, Regen Organics collects and treats over 50,000T of residual organics per year, and successfully sells its agri-inputs to farmers in over 40 counties in Kenya, who see improved yields and increased incomes. To date, nearly 6,000 farms have adopted regenerative farming. Our work is also pioneering climate action in Africa - we offset nearly 50,000T of carbon per year and we have big expansion plans to scale this impact. Our goal is to expand across Africa and Asia, safely processing 1,000,000T a year of waste and more than 1,000,000T of carbon emissions offsets per year in the next decade.
For our work, we have been recognized by Fast Company as one of the 10 most innovative companies in the world doing social good and one of the 10 best companies in Africa, by Earthshot Prize as a Finalist building a waste free world, and by the Food Planet Prize for our innovative circular economy approach.
