We are a company who are committed to bring change in the Nutritional Status of Children in our country & region. We consider ourselves as social entrepreneurs with a responsibility to produce and make nutritious and safe food accessible for vulnerable children & adults who need nutritional solutions. We plan to achieve this by managing a long-term, profitable business while taking into account all the positive and negative environmental, social and economic effects we have on society. To reach this objective, we ensure we have a system built that involves the people, community and environment. We combine a top-down and bottom-up approach to embedding social responsibility and accountability.
We believe in mentorship. The future generation needs better education and expertise. Hilina Enriched Foods (HILINA) has sponsored 20 students who have either one or no parents to help them with their school finances. Furthermore, HILINA has become a practical learning place for university students where they get unique learning experience on Food technology & processing.
We believe the Ethiopian community deserves safe and quality food as any other country. We are committed to keep high standards on food safety and engage in a responsible business activity. We want our business to have a meaning to the society and solve our problems in Nutrition. That is why we believe Agro Processing is key and working with the farmers to increase their level of Food safety & handling is our prime concern.
We are proud to be part of the development of our community. HILINA is one of the first settlers in Legetafo area for Industrial Development. Legetafo area is a small town in the out skirt of Addis. The town has so many challenges in building roads, job creation and many more. As one of the first settlers, HILINA contributed and continues to contribute to the development of this community by building roads and giving a job preference for qualified people in the community.
We measure our impacts by the number of children our products reach to improve their nutritional status. We measure our impacts by raising the level of quality awareness in the country, by the number of conscious consumers demanding quality products, by the growing quantity of local agricultural produced we processed and by the spin off effects we create in the economy of the Ethiopia.
