Groital Company Limited with support from HortiFresh has procured a 75kg industrial dryer and established a processing facility for the production of dried fruits to enhance its operations.

This is part of HortiFresh’s Individual Company Support of the Access to Finance Component. The project is a soft loan facilitated by HortiFresh through Rabobank Foundation to reduce post-harvest losses, increase employment, and improve upon the overall business activity of the company.

So far, the new dryer and the facility has increased the company’s production by about 100%, Groital employs a total of 31 staff, of which 55% are women.

Prior to this partnership, the company used to dry fruits with two 5kg domestic dryers which took about 24 hours to dry fruits. This slowed the production and growth of the company.

Joshua Ayinbora, CEO of Groital expressed satisfaction with the partnership, saying it has given his company a facelift to venture into the export market. “We use to operate the business from our home but this facility has given us enough space to work efficiently and effectively.”

According to Joshua, his company has received an order from the Netherlands to supply dried fruits as a result of HortiFresh’s trade mission activities.
