Hollanda Fairfoods

Using potatoes acquired from Rwandan smallholder farmers, Hollanda Fairfoods transforms them into high-quality potato chips that are marketed under the Winnaz brand. It is marketed in Rwanda, Uganda, Goma (DRC), and Bukavu and is known by the acronym Winnaz (winners) (DRC).

The improvement of the output and quality of Rwandan smallholder farmers is a critical component of their business model. Winnaz specialized of agronomists makes regular visits to the farmers throughout the crop cycle to provide them with ongoing , follow-ups, and . Farmers that collaborate with them have access to a premium market and produce higher yields of high-quality potatoes, resulting in increased profits.


Winnaz began by selling around 200 bags of crisps each week (after putting in a lot of work), but now Winnaz is a familiar sight on numerous shop shelves across the world! In the near future, a new facility will be open in Uganda in order to better serve our clients there. iMIS Food has been implemented at Winnaz to guarantee food and high quality to the consumers. In the video, you can see Winnaz chips factory in Kigali Rwanda.
