Makueni mango juice plant gets Sh110m EU boost

What you need to know:

  • The county is the first to benefit from an EU and Kenyan government agreement to fund economic projects across 15 counties under the Instrument for Devolution Advice and Support (IDEAS) programme.
  • Currently, the factory produces mango pulp only. It started operations last year and has so far benefited over 12,000 families through improved prices of Sh15 per kilo of mangoes.
  • The EU expressed confidence in the county to uphold high standards of financial management and challenged other counties to fast-track their projects and meet conditions for the funding programme.

The European Union has extended Sh110 million to the Makueni county government for a mango juice processor.
