Happy Cow was founded 1996 following the liberalisation of the Kenyan dairy sector. Starting off with a daily milk intake of 100 litres a day, production was primarily focused on bringing Dutch cheese making expertise to the Kenyan market.


Following the rise in popularity of the “Cheese makers from Holland”, production had soon expanded to include a wider variety of cheeses from different parts of the world; and diversified to include yoghurt, fresh cream and ghee.


By 2004, Happy Cow had grown to become a fully fledged dairy manufacturer supplying leading supermarkets, restaurants and hotels nationwide, establishing itself as a key player within the local dairy market.


Toady Happy Cow offers a complete and comprehensive product portfolio that is marketed across East Africa under our “Cheese makers from Holland” and “Jolly Fresh” brands. With a keen focus to providing consistent product quality, all products are produced in accordance to ISO 22000:2005 and Halal certification.
