Deepa Industries started in 1973 as a small ethnic snack cottage industry with three employees operating out of a house.
Since then it has become a household name in Kenya with products also being exported to Uganda, Tanzania, United States, United Kingdom, Australia and various other countries in the region. Though still family owned it now employs over 140 personnel in a large custom designed factory located in Nairobi’s industrial area.
The company has become a Kenyan leader in the packing and blending of various spices and herbs and the brand “TROPICAL HEAT” is a familiar name on supermarket shelves and in kitchens. Tropical Heat spices contain no bulking agents, are sourced directly from the best associated growing regions worldwide, are natural and always freshly ground before being packed. The cleaning processes before the grinding are extremely exhaustive to maintain product quality.
