Welcome to the website of Happy Cow Kenya

Back in 1990 in a kitchen in Nakuru, Catherine and Gerald watched their four children delve into yet another block of imported cheese. They wondered why isn’t there any quality cheese produced in Kenya? With this realisation Catherine and Gerald began making cheese in their kitchen and then opened up a small delicatessen in Sita Centre Nakuru and Happy Cow Ltd “Cheese Makers from Holland” was born. The rest as they say is history.
Happy Cow, still based in Nakuru, produces an extensive range of dairy products that are distributed all over Kenya and in the neighbouring countries, Uganda and Tanzania. Happy Cow’s core product is cheese. They produce: Gouda (of various types), Cheddar, Edam, Feta, Black Danbo, Tilster, Red Holland, Calloumi, Permasan, Hollanda Blue, Paneer, Cottage Cheese and Cream Cheese.
Happy Cow also produces yoghurt of many flavours including real fruit yoghurt range. Its Jolly Fresh yoghurt is currently the most popular loved by many for its richness and thickness.
Family is the root of success of Happy Cow. Catherine and Gerald lead by example in instilling core family values into their business and valuing employees as family. The result is growth over the years due to employees that care about the products they produce, understanding that these products are meant for consumption and enjoyment by families.
Besides supplying Kenya's major supermarkets, we also sell our cheeses in our own shops in Nakuru (the Cheese Palace and Renacom), in Nairobi and Mombasa. In these shops we sell our cheeses, yoghurt and other dairy products, and in Nakuru also our fresh milk. You might even consider having lunch at one of our shops as we also serve meals. Look under "Our Shops" for more information and where to find them. We also supply to several restaurants and hotels: You can find more information on the "Retailers" page under "Sales".
