On april the 14th the board meeting of smart | dairy Kenya was held at the smart | dairy head office in Hilversum. Chairman, Wycliffe Oparanya and Deputy CEO, Martin Rogers where invited to have this meeting in Hilversum so they could also meet the smart | dairy team in the Netherlands.
smart | dairy Kenya Ltd. is the first joint venture and was established in 2015. A fruitful start was made with the first four stables being shipped to Kakamega at the beginning of this year. Currently the first franchisees are being trained so they can start farming at the end of May.
It was therefore at an exciting moment to meet with a wider team and discuss all the progress that has been made and plan for the coming year. In 2016 smart | dairy Kenya Ltd. will focus on establishing twenty smart | dairy farms in Kakamega county. With the Farm-in-the-Box barn. And all run by fully trained smart | dairy farmers.
