Mhogo foods is looking at solving the issue of food security and malnutrition among the people living at the Base of the Pyramid in Kenya. The company is processing cassava tubers into affordable, multi-purpose and nutritious cassava flour which is a replacement for maize and wheat flour and can be used for many traditional and modern dishes in Kenya.
