Construction of the State of the Art Wholesale market begins

Traders across the North rift region are set to benefit from the state of the art wholesale market which is under construction in Kimumu Ward.

The modern market, Bahati which is located a few kilometers from Eldoret town is set to house four cold rooms.

The over 170 million European Union (EU) funded the project will upon completion offer employment to specifically the youth and also improve the economic development of the region.

Speaking on Thursday when she visited the project site, County CECM for ICT, Trade, and Industrialization Dr. Emily Kogos flanked by Trade CO Simeon Tanui said it will be a relief to farmers doing perishable products as the cold rooms will be readily available.

Kogos said traders used to incur huge losses resulting from products that end up spoiling within hours.

“We are proud as county because the availability of cold rooms can store perishables which can be sold within or can be transported to the airport for export” said Kogos

The market with its huge capacity will also reduce the congestion in the current markets besides serving as the distribution point for all other markets.

Uasin Gishu County is among 15 counties that benefitted from donor’s Ksh 1.5 Billion for the establishment of the market whose priority is to enhance hygiene and food handling process in all the available markets in the county.

The department of trade is working towards realizing ample trading ground for small traders which will eventually promote local markets.
