A study commissioned by the Energy ministry early last month, shows a silent death-trap inside homes. The study indicated solid fuels and kerosene in traditional and simple stoves are leading pollutants.
Despite the legislative ban on logging, over 70% of Kenyans still use charcoal, firewood and kerosene for cooking.
In an exclusive interview, Safari Supa Gas Head of Business Development Flora Njagi explains why LPG is a cleaner and more economical source of fuel.
Who is Safari Supa Gas Company?
Safari Supa Gas was launched in 2019 with a vision to be the largest affordable cooking gas solution provider in East and Central Africa.
What is the target market of the product?
Currently our focus is with the growing market of over 70% of households without LPG or access to it. In fact, Safari would like to go from just raising awareness within the industry, to creating employment of community engagement officers, boda boda riders to and partnering with local distributors to ensure seamless end to end delivery of gas
What are the advantages over existing gases?
Through the introduction of USSD technology, and by simply dialing *873# customers will now be able to place orders from the comfort of their home through Safari and its network of authorized dealers – meaning quality of product and service is always assured
What is the pricing of the product, especially in these harsh economic times?
The customer can always be assured that we will always provide competitive prices whilst maintaining the highest quality standards.
How long does it last (main concern of every consumer)?
We only have hospitality agreements with licensed filling stations that ensure that the cylinders we are selling are to the required standards.
Where can one buy a cylinder of Safari Gas in Kenya?
We are currently in Mlolongo, Kitengela, Kawangware, Uthiru, Pipeline, Zimmerman, Githurai, Kayole, Kibera, Machakos, Nakuru, and Naivasha. USSD is currently live in Kibera and Kawangware
Tell us a little about the charity event you held in Kibera
Community engagement events like the one held in Kibera last Sunday, which saw all the participating chama groups walk away with complimentary Safari Supa gas cylinder packages, gave a great insight into how we envisage our journey with you.
Any other thing that you would like to mention in regard to Safari Gas?
Open communication with local churches and leaders at the grass roots, means that it’s not just this generation that will benefit from more environmentally friendly cooking solutions, but also the coming ones.
We are taking the SAFARI together.
