The Kenya Meat Commission (KMC) was formed in 1950 through an act of parliament with an objective of providing a ready market for livestock farmers and providing high quality meat and meat products to consumers. It is a public institution and by far the oldest and the most experienced meat processor in Kenya and the larger East African region.

KMC was re-opened on 26th June, 2006 after 15 years of closure with the objective of promoting the meat industry in Kenya, both domestic and for export. It was expected that with its huge capacity, it would complement government efforts in Kenya’s economic recovery.

KMC is a fully integrated meat processor whose strength lies in the unrivalled efficiency of its meat processing plants along with its ability to process high volumes of quality meat in line with consumer tastes and preferences.

In order to meet our objectives, KMC has benchmarked its products and services to compete with the very best in the world. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of hygiene and product excellence, as well as customer care and service. Further, the commission is upgrading its plant and machinery to be in tandem with the very best standards of global meat processing.

We focus on efficiency, effectiveness and innovation in everything that we do, as well as ensuring professionalism in all aspects of our operations. We have an elaborate program for training our staff in order to build the capacity required to meet the ever changing market needs.

As part of its strategy, KMC intends to regain its market leadership position, and once again be the market standard for quality products and services.
