The phase one of the Multi-Million County-European Union-funded project, the Kimumu Bahati fresh produce wholesale market is almost complete.
The state of the art market is set to feed more than 100 retail markets across the North Rift Region.
In a site visit to inspect market shade and its complementary facilities on Wednesday, ICT Trade and Industrialization, County Executive Dr Emily Kogos called on the contractor to move with speed to complete the project within the shortest time possible.
The work is now at 80% and we don’t want to waste a lot of time because initially, COVID 19 interfered its construction progress,” said Kogos.
According to Chief Officer for Trade Simon Tanui, procurement of cold specialised storage facilities has commenced to fully equip the state of the art facility.
The four cold rooms will help in preserving perishable products.
The market is strategically placed within agri-business practitioners reach, hence produces will get to the market within the shortest time while still fresh.
The Project committee led by County Quantity Surveyor Fredrik Towett were present.
