The Company’s Mission:
Export Trading Group is the largest agricultural-commodity supply chain company in East and Southern Africa. Crops are originated (purchased) at farm gate in more than 25 African countries, gathered and processed in proprietary facilities, and exported internationally by the Company. In reverse, the Company imports fertilizer and rice, breaks them down into bulk and processes them, and distributes them to smallholders using this infrastructure.
Starting in Kenya, ETG Digital Platforms (Kyosk) aims to transform the retail of everyday essentials and access to financial services in Africa.
Through its technology-driven platform, Kiosk Digital Services Limited connects informal retailers who operate kiosks and other similar retail outlets directly with fast-moving consumer goods companies (FMCGs). By communicating demand from retail outlets directly to FMCGs and their distributors, and managing the delivery of the goods to kiosks, FMCGs and their distributors can meet their needs.
These retail outlets can access our digital ordering and delivery platform – Kyosk – to access stock at competitive prices and have them delivered directly to them. As a result, FMCG companies find the traditional distribution chain to be inadequate, resulting in high stock-out rates and lost sales opportunities due to the high costs associated with serving kiosk-type retail outlets. This major problem of FMCGs is solved by providing them with good data visibility.
A fast growing company of passionate and determined individuals with a singular will to succeed, Kyosk Digital is the organization for you if you want to become a business leader in the emerging digital technology arena.
