Nkuene Dairy Co-operative Society Success Model:
As you enter into Nkubu town in Meru County, you cannot miss Nkuene Dairy Farmers Co-operative society building. The society runs two milk delivery trucks, a milk bar and dairy feeds store. According to Mercy Guantai, the Assistant Manager, the society sells its feeds to their members and other farmers as well.
The society produces about 12,000 litres of milk daily from its 1,700 active members, and the milk delivered to Meru Dairy Co-operative Union Limited, the home of Mount Kenya Milk.
The cooperative is one of the union’s largest producers of milk and is a prime example of how farmers can mutually benefit from each other.
