The Sh 1 billion Eldoret fertilizer plant is expected to be opened officially in August this year. The ceremony will be presided over by Japanese Prime Minister who will be visiting the country at the time.
Construction of the 150,000 tonnes per annum capacity factory is projected to be complete in the the next two weeks. Japanese’ Toyota Tsusho East Africa is funding the construction.
The factory when operational will be a reprieve to farmers especially in the North Rift who have been facing shortages and late arrival of fertilizer.
Over 400 jobs are also in offing when this Ngeria Trading Center based factory comes into operation.
