Traders in Uasin Gishu County are set to benefit from the fresh produce Kimumu Bahati wholesale market which is 95% complete.
The European Union and County-funded project will contain four cold rooms for the preservation and storage of fresh products.
According to ICT, Trade Industrialization CECM Dr Emily Kogos, the perishable products will be preserved, a challenge that fresh produce farmers have been experiencing for a long time.
Besides preservation, the market will to a great extent solve congestion in town’s wholesale market-creating smooth operations among traders and buyers,” said Dr Kogos.
The Department of ICT and E-Government is currently working on a system that will help farmers and traders know current market prices for various commodities across different markets in the region.
