Cabinet Secretary to the Ministry of Co-Operatives, Hon. Simon Chelugui earlier in the day addressed the inaugural African Coffee Trade Fair which brings together more than 40 representatives of the Korean Coffee Buyers in Nairobi.

The Kenyan Kwanza government’s journey towards rejuvenating the Coffee industry is firmly on track and we envisage great things for the Kenyan coffee farmers in the near future.

The deliberations with the visiting Korean guests centered on the need to expand the market for Kenya’s coffee in their country and other parts of the world. 

Coffee is one of the key value chains under the Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA) and we have designed a road map that will help us restore the sector to its full glory.

“We know the challenges our farmers are facing and together we will find the solutions. Indeed, the future is bright for our farmers,” stated Hon. Chelugui

Accompanied by the Principal Secretary for the State Department of Cooperatives Patrick Kilemi, New KPCU CEO Timothy Mirugi and Kenyan Ambassador to South Korea, designate, Prof. Kipsoi.

Connecting coffee growers to buyers abroad is an important factor in ensuring that the Kenyan coffee farmers reap maximum benefits for their hard work.

The Kenya Kwanza administration has initiated key administrative and legislative reforms geared towards restoring the coffee sector to its full glory.
