Africans spend on average 50% of their disposable income on food due to supply chain inefficiencies stemming from the informality of the retail industry. Twiga improves access to lower-cost and higher-quality food across urban African cities through a business-to-business marketplace.

Twiga Foods uses a business-to-business marketplace to aggregate informal retail demand and organize an efficient supply chain for fresh and dry goods across urban African cities.
