Natural Extracts Industries Ltd

Natural Extracts Industries Ltd (NEI), a start-up social enterprise, is pioneering the sustainable, natural flavour manufacturing industry in Tanzania, starting with vanilla and other flavour extracts. The company works in all areas from cultivation, to post-harvest processing, value-add manufacturing and international sales and marketing. The supply chain currently integrates over 1,200 farmers from Kilimanjaro, Arusha and Morogoro regions, and through this sourcing model NEI aims to deliver a long term socioeconomic impact of ~$280 in incremental annual income per smallholder household. Current products include: natural flavours, such as liquid extracts from vanilla, orange, cacao and coffee; and solid flavours like gourmet-grade bourbon vanilla pods, cocoa powder and nibs. The company was recently selected as a finalist nominee for the Nestle Creating Shared Value Prize and has secured long term funding from the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund and social impact investors. It is embarking on a high growth trajectory, particularly in expanding its supply chain to reach 6,000 farmers and in achieving world-class manufacturing standards.
