A Message from the CEO

” Greetings,
Originating from the heartland of Kenya’s robust livestock industry, I have borne witness to the critical need for superior animal health products in the market. The scarcity of essential veterinary supplies, coupled with the prevalence of substandard products, has cast a shadow over the livelihoods of our hardworking livestock farmers. In Kenya, countless communities depend on the livestock sector as their main source of livelihood, and notably contributes approximately 12% to our nation’s GDP.

Recognizing this void, the seed of Medina Chemicals was sown. Our founding vision in 1999 was to bridge the gap by offering high-quality, cost-effective animal health solutions to farmers, not only within Kenya but extending to the broader East African region. We embarked on this journey despite grappling with challenges such as limited infrastructure, a dearth of skilled professionals, and a lack of community education on sound animal husbandry practices.

As the years have unfolded, Medina Chemicals has steadfastly evolved into a pillar of support for livestock farmers across Kenya. Through our commitment to excellence, we have been able to provide first-rate veterinary products, while sourcing economical solutions from esteemed manufacturers worldwide. We have made a mark in remote areas by deploying adept professionals who are well-versed in their field. Moreover, we have joined hands with government bodies and regulatory authorities to combat unethical trade practices, ensuring that only the finest products reach our farmers.

A testament to our unwavering dedication, Medina Chemicals has blossomed beyond Kenya’s borders. We have established comprehensive offices and distribution centers in Tanzania and Somalia, and cultivated strategic alliances in Uganda, Rwanda, and South Sudan. Our expansion endeavors are driven by our mission to make our acclaimed animal health solutions and exemplary services accessible to livestock farmers across the region.

The animal health sector is a tapestry of challenges and triumphs, and it carries the weight of responsibility. We are fervent in our quest to contribute to a vibrant and competitive industry on the global stage. Looking ahead, the emphasis will be on hygiene and preventive care, to minimize drug residues and to unlock the doors to the affluent markets of developed nations. We must also address the emerging hurdles such as climate change, diminished rainfall, and recurrent droughts. These obstacles demand a united front and the pooling of resources, ingenuity, and strategies among all stakeholders to foster and sustain the growth of this indispensable industry.

Thank you for joining us on this momentous journey. Together, we can nurture the seeds of change and reap the harvest of progress.
Warm regards, “

Abdi Bare, CEO
