Kenya’s agribusiness firm Goldenscape Group is set to break ground on its Sh150 million a food processing plant in Laikipia County.
The plant is looking at processing of tomatoes, vegetables and onions.
The plant is expected to employ over 300 people.
“The plant will be under Goldenscape Industries, we are currently waiting on NEMA approval to construct the plant, we are already in the process of shipping Machinery,” Wangai said.
Wangai says the processing plant will also be linking farmers directly to consumers removing the middle man who is taking advantage of the farmers.
The firm’s Chief Executive Peter Wangai says the plant is aimed at reducing food wastage in the county and increase farmers’ productivity.
