Kenchic Ltd came into existence in 1984 after acquiring its assets from BAT Kenya Developments Ltd in 1983. The company’s operation at the time of its acquisition had its production facilities in three localities i.e. Athi River [Breeder farm, Hatchery]; Broiler farm on leased premises and Tigoni Processing Plant in Limuru. The company started from a humble beginning producing 20,000 DOC per week and a processing capacity of 5000 birds per week with a total work force of 77. During this time, all operations were manual.
Currently the company’s production facilities are located at Tigoni Processing Plant, Athi River [Broiler farm and Hatchery], Mombasa [Hatchery] and six Breeder farms on the plains of Kajiado and Naivasha.
Kenchic is the only licensed export slaughter house in Kenya for poultry products. Our processing plant supplies chicken to international franchises like Galitos, Steers, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) in East Africa, airline caterers like NAS, leading hotels, caterers, and fast food restaurants including all the 30 Kenchic Inns countrywide
