Kenya Kiri AB | washed
Kiri Factory is run by Ngiriambu Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS). Over 3,555 members deliver cherry to the station. Members of Ngiriambu FCS cultivate SL28 and SL34 varieties on small coffee gardens that are typically less than 1 hectare. Ngiriambu Factory takes every action to preserve the exceptional quality of the cherry delivered by their members.
Farmers delivering to Kiri cultivate primarily SL28 and SL34 in small coffee gardens that are, on average, smaller than 1 hectares. ‘SL’ varieties are cultivars originally released by Scott Agricultural Laboratories (SAL) in the 1930s and 1940s. They soon became the go-to trees for many growers in Kenya due to their deep root structure, which allows them to maximize scarce water resources and flourish even without irrigation. They are cultivated with a serious eye to sustainability and Good Agricultural Practices, with minimal environmental impact where possible.
