About Agro Chemical and Food Company Limited

Agro-Chemical and Food Company Limited (ACFC) was established in 1978
under the Companies Act Cap 486 to produce power alcohol from sugarcane
molasses. It was a unique joint venture between the private sector and the
Government of Kenya.
The Power Alcohol was to be blended with petrol to make gasohol as a national
strategy for reducing foreign exchange used to purchase petroleum oil. The
project was identified by Mr. M.N. Mehta, Chairman, Mehta International
Group. This programme could not be sustained because there was no policy
and legal framework to regulate the use of Power Alcohol. In addition, there
was resistance from the multi-national petroleum companies who feared a
reduction in their market share and therefore, in 1982 the company shifted to
producing various grades of spirits and yeast.
The company produces its products from raw molasses procured from various
sugar factories. The total Cane molasses requirement is approximately 85,000
tons per annum.
The Company’s major products are various grades of Spirits and Yeast
based brands categorized into 6 broad categories namely Bulk Spirit Range,
Compounded Spirits Range, Compounded Denatured Spirit Range, Baker’s
Yeast Range, Carbon dioxide Range and Animal feeds Range.
