Stable Foods is a venture-backed Kenyan-based agtech startup fundamentally transforming the productivity of smallholder farmers in Africa.


One of Africa’s most critical challenges is food security in the face of climate change. Today, the continent counts 800 million food insecure people, and this number is growing.
