This was not in the cards because everyone was busy talking about what they will do “after Corona.” The Kenyan food market trends in 2021 will for the first time be guided by the effects of a global pandemic.

The Story Begins in a Biscuit Manufacturing Company in Kenya Everyone has a story of how they were grossly underpaid when they were starting out in their careers. Even those who started with 100K will tell you how they started life in a “small” 20K apartment in Kasarani. For that reason, I will also not be left behind.
