GOOD NEWS:What KFC Is Set To Do That Will Put Smile On Kenyan Farmers Faces

According to the current intervention,Kenya local producers will start supplying the American first food restaurant chain with potatoes by the end of this year.This comes after the Nyandarua county government and the KFC held talks to find ways through which the the restaurant can work with Kenyan farmers through cooperatives or oraganise youth groups to buy local potatoes.The Nyandarua county governor Mister Francis Kimemia and KFC chief executive Jaques Theunissen agreed on a framework to benefit local farmers.

The move will be in strict compliance with the internationally set standards that will see that franchise maintains its quality while local farmers improve on their farming as well as storage practises.It can be remembered that KCF restaurant was initially importing potatoes from Egypt claiming that the country observe set standards that improve the potato quality something that they argued that Kenya does not do.However,a recent statement by the franchise that it had run out of chips elicited sharp reactions from the stakeholders in the potato value chain with some terming it as insensitive to Kenyan farmers.
