Makueni County commissions dairy and mango plant


Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana tastes Makueni Milk after commissioning the dairy plant

Makueni County has commissioned  a dairy plant, Kikima Dairy Farmers Cooperative Society, which will have a  capacity to process and back 300 litres and 6,600 litres in a day.

The brand  dubbed Makueni Fresh milk becomes the first dairy product to be processed in the county after Governor Kivutha Kibwana opened the Sh25 million plant in Mbooni sub-County.

Makueni produces 18 million litres of milk annually against a demand of 340 million litres which guarantees market for Makueni Fresh. Meanwhile mango farmers in the county will now enjoy the fruits of their labour after the governor opened a fruit processing plant to process season’s mango harvest.

The processing plant will curb 40 percent of post-harvest fruit waste that farmers used to grapple with in the past by making and preserving mango puree.
