While the company idea grows, the foundation WELT:KLASSE starts its work. It gives students the chance to learn about sustainability projects in Kenya and other countries.
LIMBUA is founded as a German-Kenyan company specializing in organic macadamia nuts. A processing facility is established in Githure to process the harvest locally.
After 3 years of conversion, the first smallholders receive full organic status. LIMBUA is therefore the first company in the world to accompany macadamia smallholders in achieving organic certification.
There is an increasing demand for macadamia nuts in organic quality for natural food and cosmetics. LIMBUA grows and opens its second factory in Githungururu.
Well-known companies from the German and European organic market are now among LIMBUA's customers. To serve them, a third factory is built in Kianyaga.
For more and more customers LIMBUA is considered a quality producer of organic macadamia nuts and thus the factory in Githungururu is expanded to meet the increasing demand.
The increasing demand ensures full capacity utilization in all three processing sites. Ideas are developed to bring more organic products from Kenyan smallholder farmers to the market.
LIMBUA expands its product range with avocado oil. For this product, too, a modern factory is built on site, where the fruits are peeled, pitted and cold-pressed.
Organic mango is now also being purchased from the smallholders who work with LIMBUA. The fruits are processed into dried mangoes of organic quality.
