Sh400m for avocado project in Murang’a (Kenya)

CEO Gary Hannan says that Alivando has engaged 1,030 farmers in quality production of the avocados and has started a pilot factory in Murang’a to boost production.

Hannan explains that central Kenya is better placed to produce high-quality avocado products, as this area has the potential to produce avocados with a high concentration of oil and wax.
He adds that Kenya could be producing 0.3m litres of highquality avocado oil for export and local consumption in five years time, if farmers embrace the practice. – Nairobi Star
