Our Founder

Grown with passion

Wealmoor has always enjoyed a pioneering spirit. From enabling an emerging nation to become self sufficient in staple crops to developing transformational export opportunities, our founder Rati Dhanani was a man of vision. His achievements to mobilise rural communities in Kenya through agriculture continues to underpin Wealmoor’s unique purpose, mission and values. Indeed, our heritage is very much central to who we are and the way we do things.

Horticulture remained a passion for Rati throughout his professional and personal life. Although now sadly departed, his boundless energy, enthusiasm and founder’s mentality lives on today and continues to be a key part of The Wealmoor Way.
