Coffee farmers to sell coffee directly to the US
Kenyan farmers can now through the Zabuni platform sell coffee direct to the United States and double their returns.
Zabuni is a coffee auction platform that allows access to over 5200 independent coffee roasters in the United States.
Cabinet Secretary for Trade and Industrialisation Peter Munya Lauded the efforts of the platform noting that the government is currently restructuring Kenya planters cooperative unions to ensure that the coffee business is profitable.
Farmers trading on the platform are reportedly making more than double the average of what the coffee auction is offering.
Cs Munya also assured farmers that plans are underway to ensure farmers get a 40 percent advance on delivery through the Coffee Cherry Fund.
Munya made these remarks during the announcement of the partnership between Zabuni and KPCU.
