Our role

Established in 2006, Minimex is the largest and most technologically advanced mill in the country with a capacity of over 40,000 tonnes per annum. It produces high-quality maize flour, grits and bran which are sold in the East Africa region. The company has a strong focus on food quality, safety, and nutrition. AgDevCo’s investment will allow the Rwandan-owned company to increase its capacity and ramp up purchases from tens of thousands of maize farmers across the country.
