Taimba

We are a mobile-based cashless platform that connects farmers to retailers
Why Us?

We believe that food chains should be simple because everyone should have access to affordable quality food.

How We Do It

We source from the farmer at affordable prices that are farmer friendly. We then offer the retailers the fresh produce at lower than market prices enabling them to sell to the final consumer at more affordable prices including delivering to their premises.

The Taimba Benefit

We save retailers 2 to 3 dollars they would incur from transport costs, guarantee traceability on the source of our produce, deliver quality produce to retailers straight from the farm, deliver to retailer for free giving the retailer freedom and convenience

Taimba Versatility

We source from the farmer and deliver to the retailer at their premises using last mile vehicles

We Build Relationships That Last

More than an anything at Taimba, we are focused on our relationship with Farmers and Retailers. To us, they are not just trading partners, but friends that we just happen to do business with.

We Understand Farmers

Right Price: We ensure that as a farmer, you get value for your produce by getting paid on time and at the right value.

Ready Market: Our Retailers Network offers a ready market for the farmer while removing the logistical challenges that would normally compound market access.

Support: We link farmers to partners who provide support to farmers on best farming practices

What We Offer Our Retailers, Vendors and Consumers

Stable Prices

We have the lowest prices in the market for any fresh produce. Further, there are minimal fluctuations if any on our prices so you never have to worry about breaking your account

Support

We link farmers to partners who provide support to farmers on best farming practices

Ease of Use

Buy produce using the convenience of your phone. Restocking is as easy as 1.2.3! Just get on your phone to restock your fresh produce outlet and we will show up in no time.

Traceability

We guarantee traceability on the source of our produce hence increasing accountability and safety across the supply chain.

Convenience

We ensure you do not need to go to the market at 5am to get fresh produce, rather the produce comes to you right on time

Assured Quality

You get quality produce that flies off the shelf.

Think Global, Act Local

The journey of Taimba is the journey of a generation, we seek and continue to move forward with organizations and partners that share in our vision for farmers.

Vulnerable and Essential Farm Products

We are focused on Potatoes, Onions, Carrots and Tomatoes as they are very vulnerable to market price volatility, seasons and have a short shelf life where proper storage is non-existent.
