Over 10, 000 farmers to benefit from Kiganjo-based New KCC expansion

New Kenya Co-operative Creameries Ltd Company is set to expand its plant-based in Kiganjo in Nyeri County.

Once the expansion is complete, the company is expected to create jobs to over 400 youths in Nyeri County. The expansions plans were revealed by the Company’s Chairman Ignatius Kahiu during his visit to the Nyeri County Governors office.

The Company also has plans to increase the processing of condensed milk and establish a water refining project. The Company is also keen to focus on camel milk processing.

Speaking after the New KCC team visited his offices, Governor Mutahi Kahiga lauded Government’s move to pump 400 Million towards revitalizing New KCC. He believes that the expansion will open up the town.

The Governor also stated that the expansion will benefit local farmers as extra 5,000 locals will be able to sell their milk to the company.

New KCC is one of the oldest milk plants in East and Central  Africa. Its products range from processed milk, butter, cheese, flavored, unflavored milk, fermented milk and Milk powder.

The decision to expand the Kiganjo plant comes days after President Uhuru Kenyatta laid stone foundation for the Nyambene plant in Meru County which will cost 250 Million. The plant will hold 100, 000 litres of milk once it is complete in  October 2020.
