About Us

The Origins


Despite Nepal being a country with large number of people depending upon agriculture for their livelihood, the agricultural sector within the country had not observed progress. Seeing this as an issue, we set out in a quest to reform the sector by introducing modern agriculture techniques as well as encouraging cultivation of high value cash crops like kiwi fruits to improvise the economic standard of people involved in agriculture industry.

Established in 2007

We commenced our business as Environment Protection and Alternative Power Development Private Limited in 2007.

Rebranded in 2016

To better reflect our focus, we rebranded to Hesty Kiwi PL in 2016. Hesty is a portmanteau of words healthy and tasty.
