Privamnuts Kenya Limited was incorporated in the year 2011 to engage in agro-food processing and more importantly to exploit the opportunity that existed in the Kenyan Macadamia market. When it started, the company had its principal offices and processing plant in the industrial area of Thika municipality, about 30 Km from Nairobi, the Capital City of Kenya.
In the year 2015 the company constructed a new state-of-the-art processing plant in Embu town, about 130 Km from Nairobi. The new plant began operations in February 2016. In the same year, the company was issued with export processing zone operating license and changed its name to PRIVAMNUTS EPZ (KENYA) LTD.
