Sun Sweet Company
Sun • Sweet • Company
Located on the outskirts of Kitui County in Kenya, Sun Sweet Company was started in 2019. Here there are groves of mango trees as far as your eyes can see. Every day 10 women gather to sort, process and dry mangoes that are harvested from over 100 farmers during peak season between December and April.
The women here are traditionally from the tribe Kamba. Each day begins very early in the morning for them and ends late in the evening. But the women find the hard work worth it because it means they make enough income to help feed their families.
The women and the company at large feel great to have their fruits sold in the US.
