Tata Chemicals Magadi occupies a significant place in the African economy. It is Africa's largest soda ash manufacturer and one of Kenya's leading exporters. Just as significant, the company is an important part of the socio-economic fabric of the Lake Magadi region in Kenya where its soda ash facility is based.
The company's social responsibility approach is to work with local community leaders and NGOs to provide vital inputs and support in critical areas. For instance, the company-supported Magadi Hospital provides subsidised health care to the community and supports other health centres in the area.
