    • Thank you for your honest experience. We do not have machines for display. Any machine that has been ordered is available for display before the owner takes it. But you can request to be taken to KEFRI where you can see the real machine. We do not deal with second hand or jua kali products. We do not stock chemicals and the town office you visited was for training and office matters. At our Kamiti road, we are located in Millennium petrol station flats with adequate and secure parking.

  2. Good People,
    Greetings from Jinja, Uganda. I hope this finds you well.
    We own and operate a rice mill in Jinja. Currently I am working on soap processing and then I then saw this.
    I intend to use as much local materials as possible. While in the long run most of them can even be processed here in order to substitute imports, I know this will realistically take time. Hence we have to grow the industry from an import base. Starting with washing soap, can we please work together to start and complete this project? I also have very innovative ideas to add to yours.
    I hope we can do business in one way or the other.

  3. Hello kosmotics kenya,
