The plant will serve dairy farmers from five of the nine sub-counties in Meru County that include Tigania East, Tigania West, Tigania Central, Igembe North and Igembe South.
This plant will also create jobs for the youth in this area.
In addition CS Munya handed over 1000 straws of semen to dairy farmers and Kitchen garden starter-kits to schools and farmers’ groups to achieve 100% Food and Nutrition security.
