Welcome to Mintu Investment Group

History of Mintu Investment Group


A leading manufacturing company founded in 1960’s by Mr. Lemma Wakene and Ms. Aynalem Ayele. We started our journey by producing sweet candy. Thanks to the industrialist entrepreneur family, the companies have now diversified into various industries.

We strongly believe that we Ethiopians can produce enough for ourselves and export value added consumer products instead of agricultural products and raw materials.  Our Moto is “WHY IMPORT? LET’S MAKE IT HERE.”

Today, Mintu Investment Group produces plastic raw materials such as PET preform and caps for bottling companies, PVC compound for plastic shoe, pvc hose and other PVC product manufacturers, and other related products. Additionally, the company produces wheat flour under the name Wakene Food Complex PLC, bottled water and fruit juice under the name Victory Water, and Happy Juice. We also produce instant noodles and edible oil. All of our facilities are certified with ISO 9001-2015 Quality management system and FSMS 22000-2018, ensuring our commitment to quality and food safety.

With our state of the art facility, we clean and export Ethiopian sesame seeds, as well as other oil seeds and pulses. Moreover, from more than a thousand small holder farmers, we source the best coffee from regions around Limmu, Gera, and Sheka, and we process it in advanced ways to meet the highest quality standards. Our coffee is certified as ORGANIC, café certified by Starbucks, and RFA. We export our best coffee to Europe, the USA, and other developed markets.

Apart from our manufacturing business, we develop real estate apartments in downtown Addis. Our Menoria real estate PLC is one of the best real estate developers in town.

At Mintu Investment Group, we believe in giving back to our community. We support our community by providing access to clean water and building schools. We also support various charitable organizations and initiatives that promote education, health, and environmental causes.
