Since its inception in 1963, Amiran Kenya Ltd has been a driving force behind the horticulture and floriculture industries in Kenya and throughout East Africa. Over the years Amiran has expanded its activities and is today a leader in telecommunications, water purification, solar energy, generators and more.

From products and services to training and capacity building, the Amiran Kenya Ltd brand has become synonymous with the highest international standards of excellence. Through decades of partnership with Kenya’s large and small-scale growers, Amiran has become a “one-stop shop” for all of Kenya’s agricultural needs.
