Sweet potato processing plant opened in Migori

Cabinet Secretary, Mr Eugene Wamalwa commissioned the Migori County Sweet Potato Processing plant at Getong’anya, Kuria West Sub County.

The County Government of Migori says in partnership with the national government and other stakeholders such as the European Union, they worked tirelessly to ensure this was achieved. The County says this project will address the plight of farmers who have been exploited heavily by the middlemen who buy their products at low costs.

Some of the products the plant will be processing from the sweet potatoes include: crisps, flour and biscuits and this will give the farmers value for their crop.
