OVERVIEW

Naivas is headquartered in Nairobi, with retail outlets in many urban centres in the country. The chain is the country's largest supermarket chain followed by competitors Tuskys. Naivas recently opened a state of the art food market store, the first in East Africa. In July 2018, the company hired Andreas von Paleske, as an advisor to assist the business with its strategy and operations. This culminated in bringing experienced African private equity firm Amethis on board for a minority stake. At that time, Naivas Limited maintained 47 stores in Kenya. The supermarket chain opened its 53rd store in Kenya in July 2019 at Rongai, Nakuru County, with plans to open two more stores the same year.
