This season, we’re showcasing stories from the inaugural class of Changing Narratives Africa Fellowship, a highly selective program for African food entrepreneurs who are ready to scale their brands into global markets. This week’s guest is William Omamo, a Kenyan national and trained hospitality professional with over 20 years of industry experience. He is a graduate of Les Roches Global Education Switzerland. William's career has seen him work with world-class organizations leaving a footprint in 4 countries on the African continent. As an entrepreneur, William’s passion to be creative & innovative saw him startup 3 coffee shops & a pub/steakhouse during his career. He is also the brains behind “CAKE-ZERO”; a unique high-fiber sugar-free natural fruit-sweetened cake which is fast gaining popularity with health conscious folks in Nairobi. His venture into hot pepper farming & value addition dates back to 2009. Initially the pepper business was a side hustle, but with the onset of COVID19 William had to step up and commercialize the hot pepper enterprise to what it is today; a trail-blazing enterprise which aims to produce the most favored table condiments and cooking ingredients Out of Africa. Our long-term ambition is to establish a world-class agro-tourism destination on Lake Victoria, Kenya.
