Welcome to UGMA

UGMA was established in May 2017 to articulate the issues affecting the maize industry and lobby for a liberalized maize market. We have an operational office based in the industrial area, opposite Road C, off Mombasa road at Kuguru Food Complex.UGMA reach at least 53.3% of ugali consumers (by milling capacity in Kenya). We have spread in all urban and informal settlements as well as villages and remote areas. We reach needy ugali consumers who can’t afford micronutrient supplements and many who don’t have access to medical services until the deficiency is manifest and disease-causing. We also play a key role in fortification where we serve in the Kenya National Food Fortification Alliance (KNFFA) where the association chairman plays the role of chairman in this special committee.
Ongoing workshop at Safari Park Hotel on food safety and fortification.
