Who are we?

QualiBasic Seeds (QBS) is a Foundation Seed (FS) company, set-up in2017, headquartered in

Nairobi, Kenya, with subsidiary operations in Zambia and South Africa. QBS is a commercial

business which will ultimately be owned by the seed companies with whom we conduct


Our Value Proposition :

Achieving high quality standards such as genetic purity and good germination, over several production cycles, is both a painstaking process and is expensive.

  • QBS aims to leverage economies of scale, to support significant investment in production and quality management to be able to ensure timely supply of FS to customers.
  • We aim to supply FS of the highest quality, priced according to the value addition to a seed company’s business but representing a level of affordability that enhances the availability of Certified Seed to small scale farmers in Africa.
  • We’re more of a problem solver and risk mitigator than just a seed company – Helping customers manage the inherent risk of producing FS and providing them with FS that significantly improves the output of their Certified Seed.
  • QBS aims to ensure that a Seed Company can not only reliably produce their certified seed requirement, but also increase their Certified Seed yield, thus improving both quality and productivity
