Agriculture and Food Processing

Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy in Kenya, providing livelihood to approximately 75 per cent of the population. There is considerable scope for diversification and expansion of the agricultural sector through accelerated food crop production, processing and marketing.

There are also opportunities for improvement in technological infrastructure such as packaging, storage, and transportation. Intensified irrigation and additional value added processing are areas for investments.

Very practical as it uses available resources for a dairy farmer!

The concept of cold storage plus value addition is a plus in this idea. As this will provide incentive to farmers who have access to stable pricing due to economies of scale plus value added produce.
