Kuku Bora establishes processing plant
Kuku Bora established a commercial indigenous chicken processing plant. The business is leveraging on the existing high production of indigenous chicken (over32million birds) as well as opportunities for private public partnership specifically with Bungoma county government.
The company specializes in indigenous chicken products supplied to a large network of markets within Kenya and entirely EAC market. The business will procure chicken from the local small holder farmers; this will provide them with a new sustainable income stream in particular women and the youth through job creation along the indigenous chicken value chain ranging from production, input supply to final distribution of the product.
Overall this would be a major climate adaption opportunity for farmers in the region with potential replication in other parts of the country especially in arid and semi-arid lands where continued dependency on traditional agricultural activities are faced with increasing challenges of climate change
