In a groundbreaking development, our region secures a Ksh 302 million investment through a dynamic collaboration with the British High Commission and Sustainable Urban Economic Development (SUED). The infusion of funds is set to propel the establishment of a state-of-the-art packing house for avocado and passion fruit export, along with a venture into edible oil production.

Uasin Gishu County Secures 302 Million Avocado Funding

Fresh Product, meticulously selected through a PWC-led market sounding exercise, is poised to commence operations in Eldoret within the next 6 months. This strategic move not only marks a transformative milestone for our avocado farmers but also underscores our commitment to supporting them with essential seedlings.

The collaborative efforts extend to exploring additional investment avenues. The program is actively seeking investors for Maize Milling and Potato Cold Store initiatives within our county.

Acknowledging the pivotal role played by key stakeholders, we express our gratitude to the British High Commission, represented by Dr. Dominic Biwott, the British High Commissioner’s North Rift Advisor, SUED Program, and PWC. Their visit, alongside the investor, serves as a testament to the robust partnerships driving our region’s economic growth and agricultural prosperity.
