Yellow Star Food Products Ltd was founded in 1997 and registered in 2014, and produces nutritive cassava flour, soya bean flour for children and adults, soya paste and ground nuts. Other products include a mixture of soya, millet flour and soya with maize or rice. These products are organically processed and tested at every level to ensure quality. The company sources input from contracted women groups and groups of farmers that are closely monitored and supported, and to which by-products are returned as animal feeds. Yellow Star has sales contracts with 4 supermarkets (Shoprite, Nakumat, Quality and Capital) and also sells to schools, orphanages, church organizations and individuals. Each morning they bring around orders using their own delivery van. The business currently rents most of the processing facilities and wants to establish its own processing plant as well as a larger facility for storage and packaging. The development of the facility has already started and additional finance is needed to complete the building and to cover initial working capital.
