PROFILE

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Iyego Coffee Growers Cooperative Society


Iyego Coffee Growers Cooperative Society is located in Iyego Location in Muranga County.

Murang’a County is one of the five counties in the Central region of the Republic of Kenya and thought to be  the birthplace of the Kikuyu Community.

Iyego CGCS was was established and registered in 1959 with over twelve mills. Due to dropping coffee prices and instability in the local coffee sector, only five mills operate today, one of which is Iyego.  Iyego CGCS has around 7,500 members with only around 4,500 being active. They have around 2,000 hectares growing coffee and produce about 1600 metric tonnes of cherry annually.

The Cooperative owned by its members. Members are issued with share certificates based on contributions. It is run by 9 elected board members with a 3 member supervisory committee. The Managing Secretary, Mrs Nyaga, manages the day-to-day activities and is in charge of the 70 permanent staff members . During peak harvest time, seasonal workers are hired to assist with production.

Iyego runs a nursery of Ruiru 11 and  Batian that they sell (or offer on credit) to farmers to graft on their SL trees. By increasing efficiency through digitalisation, the co-operative has been able to enhance its communication, improve training and payments to their farmers.
