Posted By on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Africa Improved Foods Rwanda Ltd is a manufacturer of highly nutritious quality fortified foods. Our nutrition products are intended to address malnutrition among vulnerable population segments such as pregnant and breast-feeding mothers, older infants and young children especially in the first 1,000 days of their life. To this end, we plan to avail on a commercial scale nutritional products for lifestyle consumer groups in Rwanda and the whole East African Region.

In as much as we are a commercial, for profit organization, we also strive to have the maximum social, economic and environmental impact possible on the communities in which we operate.

Our model is to source raw materials from local small-holder farmers, employ, develop and deploy local talent in the creation and growth of our fortified foods business. We work with various partners and stakeholders to achieve our goals.

Our Mission is to provide African consumers with high-quality fortified complementary foods that are affordable and available.

Our Vision is to be a trusted Africa-based producer of a range of nutritious foods that are proven to improve health.

Africa Improved Foods Rwanda Ltd finds Safety Health & Environment towards employees, contractors and casual workers as a top priority, therefore we summarize our most important safety rules into the AIF lifesaving rules. All employees and visitors will get an in-depth training about the content of these rules. We therefore encourage all walk-ins to strongly comply with these rules.
