Kenya Rung´eto Karimikui – AA

Cooperative Coffee, Microlot

The factories in this society were recognised after liquidation of the famous Ngiriama co-operative society which had a lot of Assets. After liquidation Karimikui joined with Kii & Kiangoi to form Rungeto farmers’ co-operative society. The factory re-opened in 1997 for coffee processing. The Rungeto Farmer’s society operates a dairy cooling plant and collects over 120,000 litres of milk a month and is a supplier to one of Kenya’s largest dairy product companies. This helps the farmers diversify their income base. Using Fairtrade premiums, the society has also set up a fuel station. The income allows the society to cover it’s overheads thereby increasing the farmers income.
