Zidi is a line of fun products from tuLe Mashariki. Here we have made jam, salsa, ice cream and smoothies. With this we believe we shall be bridging the gap in the food sector specifically on avocado consumption. We also are going to take full advantage of them due to the fact that in the peak season avocadoes are in plenty hence many of them go bad due to high supply in the market.
