Kenya Breweries Ltd (KBL) Sh15 billion plant in Kisumu, whose construction work is nearing completion will greatly transform lives of communities in the region.
Industrialisation Cabinet secretaryy Aden Mohammed (pictured left) said on Monday after conducting an extensive tour of the plant that the plant has the capacity to produce 100 million litres of Senator Keg by July.
Mohammed said nearly 15,000 small- scale farmers have already been contracted to grow sorghum which is the primary raw material for the Senator Keg.
“We were here in July last year with President Uhuru and his Deputy William Ruto when KBL Kisumu plant construction work started and today my team is back to assess the progress made so far,” he stated.
The CS revealed that more than 5,000 distributors are expected to serve Kisumu KBL with a further 110,000 people lined up to benefit across the value chain.
