Kurget Farmers Co-operative society
This co-operative is also one of the unique Rift valley co-operatives where wet-processing is done at farm level. Usually 3-5 farmers within the same area/village utilize on hand pulper.
After wet-processing, the dried parchment is delivered to the factories where it is then delivered to mills for dry milling.
