Food Security

To ensure year-round food availability for employees, Kakuzi has initiated a Kitchen Garden programme. Each employee is encouraged to cultivate the area around their house and plant vegetables sustainably. The key message of this program is that we do not have a land shortage but poor land usage as demonstrated by the fact that employees have been able to produce fourteen different types of vegetables sustainably, enough to feed a family of five and have a surplus to sell. We educate and encourage employees to organically plant indigenous vegetables, which are highly nutritious. The result has been that there is no malnutrition on our estates.

The Kitchen Garden program supplements the ongoing provision of food staples by Kakuzi to employees.
