CORPORATE MEMBER OF THE WEEK
The Kevian Kenya journey begun in 1992 with our flagship product, Mt. Kenyan Water. It was not only the launching pad for Kevian Kenya as a company but also a pioneer brand in the local bottled-water industry. Kevian Kenya Limited was the first company to launch a juice with 100% fruit juice content, Pick N Peel, which came into the market in 1999. Theirs was a venture of passion and dedication, a priceless resolve that has seen the successful growth of Kevian Kenya.
Kevian Kenya believed that fruit processing in Kenya time had arrived, although we could not find enough fruits to commercially process. In 2007, the company purchased their Thika based factory and commenced processing of mango, carrot, pineapple, tomato, and passion concentrates. In 2012, Kevian Kenya took a more innovative move and added state of the art equipment for fruit concentration and packaging which resulted in improved quality, efficiency, and capacity.
With a team of seasoned experts in the food and beverage sector, Kevian Kenya ensures that all its products maintain international standards and a high level of quality.
