Agricultural Value Chain


Kenya has to be able to produce more food for its People. This is a constitutional right.Kenyas’ staple foods are Maize, Rice and Wheat. Apart from supporting enough production and farming of these staples, Food Security Consortium, would push for having more arable land under farming, promote irrigation and a move away from rain-fed Agriculture and reclaim most of the Arid & Semi-Arid lands (ASAL) and put the land under Agriculture & Livestock farming. This is the only sure drive way for the Country to produce enough agro-foods and livestock products to feeds it’s Population and make Kenya food secure.

Our staple foods



Maize is Kenya’s’ main staple food. Its lack drives prices up, weather conditions affect its production. Kenya does not produce enough maize to feed the Country. Kenya has a major maize deficits and it imports most of its requirements from Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Food security Consortium would support the provision of better certified seeds, aided by KALRO and other seed players and provide the Country with the best seeds and breeds for higher yields .Food Security Consortium would also promote the eating of other foods apart from maize in its de-Maizing Campaign in the Country.

Mechanizing Agriculture




Wheat is a critical staple food in Kenya. Food Security Consortium, would partner with the Grains Society of Kenya, Commercial wheat growers and other inputs suppliers to wheat farming and increase the acreage under wheat production.



Rice is one of the top three (3) staple foods in Kenya. Food Security Consortium, in Partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture & Livestock, the National Irrigation Schemes and other critical stakeholders, more so with the small-scale holder farmers in the Country would endeavor to bring in the best technologies, funding and best global irrigation practices to increase rice yields in the Country Kenya food Secure.

Cassava Promotion by the Food Security Consortium


Food Security Consortium Promotes a move from our staple foods, Maize, Rice and Wheat to roots and tubers. Sweet Potatoes, English Potatoes and Cassava are some of the main tubers that Food Security Consortium is promoting to de-maize Kenya. Cassava is mainly grown in Western Kenya, Kitui, Taita Taveta and Kilifi Counties. Food Security Consortium to part in the recent National Cassava Promotion Expo supported by the University of Nairobi and it is going to promote Cassava seed Multiplication, for distribution to farmers at the University of Nairobi, Kibwezi farm, in Makueni County.

Our irrigation schemes


Food Security Consortium believes that Kenya must move away from its dependence on rain-fed agriculture to irrigation led-agriculture. Kenya has a master plan to develop and make its irrigation schemes functional to meet their mandates in food production and make the Country food Secure. Food Security Consortium would partner with the Ministry of Agriculture & Livestock, Ministry of Water, Sanitation & Irrigation and individual Irrigation schemes to see to it that the Requisite Technologies, Funding & Equipment is made available to increase the acreage under irrigation for the Country to produce more food through its Irrigation Schemes (Galana Kulalu, Mwea, Perkerra, Bura et al).
