A Brief History

A canning Factory was created by Mr. Featherstone in 1938. Mr. T.K. Patel took over the factory in 1978 and in 1981, there was a joint venture agreement with a French company SAUPIQUET to produce canned french beans for the French market. In 1982, Hortiequip Ltd, a subsidiary of NCF is created to supply French Beans to the factory through contracted farmers. In 1990 a new agreement is signed with French company, Bonduelle after they take over the vegetable section of Saupiquet. in 1992, We invested in a concentration plant to produce juices and concentrates for the Kenyan Market. Between 1995 and 2000, we invested in a freezing and dehydration plants to produce products for the Kenyan & European Market, a new French beans growing area is set up under Hortiequip Ltd. we implemented HACCP (HACCP) systems and trained our staff on the same and we later updated these systems. in 2001, we invested in the freezing line to produce frozen potato chips and later that year we introduced a new brand Golden Valley into the Kenyan market





It is a privately owned family company, owned and managed by its shareholders, Mr. T.K.Patel (founder), Mr. H.M.Patel, Mr.. V.T.Patel and Mrs. P.V.Patel
