NANDI AVOCADO FARMERS COOPERATIVE SOCIETY
The County Government of Nandi has shown progressive commitment in supporting farmer groups in cooperative societies.
This in line with HE Governor Sang transformational agenda of supporting farmers economically.
A Cooperative Society is a safe cushion to a farmer in facing any production challenge with minimal risks among it being a profitable space where he enjoys immense benefits from a collective pulling of resources and support.
And with the County Government renewed focus on emerging lucrative value chains, Nandi Avocado Farmers Cooperative Society has since been established with its introductory meeting held on Wednesday graced by the CO Cooperative Development, Dr. Bernadette Tiony at the Cooperative Development Building.
The aim of the meeting was a courtsey call and a brief to the office on the progress of the society amidst it seeking guidance of ways of engagements with the county government through the department of Agriculture and Cooperative Development in achieving its specific objectives.
The County Government through the department has since partnered with key producer and marketing organizations through various partnerships to support and promote Avocado value chain in Nandi County.
Key amongt is True Trade Africa a trade finance organization that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the County Government through the NARIGP project to offer market access linkages to farmers with avocado and Irish potatoes as priority value chains.
