Kenya: Nyandarua county officials strike potato supply deal with KFC

Nyandarua potato farmers and co-operatives could soon start supplying their produce to US fast-food restaurant chain Kentucky Fried Chicken. This comes after the county government of Nyandarua and KFC agreed on a concept that will entice farmers in the county to sell their potatoes to the latter.

The deal was made following a consultative meeting held in Nairobi on Friday between Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia and Jacques Theunissen, the Chief Executive Officer for KFC East Africa.

Theunissen pledged to organize a sit-down between prospective processors and Nyandarua farmers with the aim of achieving the high international standards required of the potatoes. Further, the parties agreed to form a joint technical committee to deliberate the details of the pact with the next engagement scheduled for Wednesday next week.
