Karurumo Smallholder Horticulture Aggregation and Processing Center at glance

Karurumo Smallholder Aggregation and Agro-processing Center belongs to the Karurumo Horticultural Self Help Group in Embu County. It is a full-scale aggregation and processing center with facilities for both aggregation of fresh produce and also small scale wet and dry processing. The installed facilities include the zero energy brick cooler and evaporative charcoal cooler similar to those in Masii. In addition, the center has a Coolbot cold room which is a low-cost alternative to a conventional cold room.

Based on best practices for produce handling and cold chain management, when the produce is received at the center it is sorted and graded based on the market destinations. Thereafter the produce should be precooled in the evaporative coolers to remove the field heat prior to storage in the Coolbot cold room. The center is also equipped with facilities for small scale wet and dry processing of fruits/vegetables. For example mango which is the main fruit in this region can be wet-processed into diverse products including pulp (puree), mango concentrate and ready to drink juice. Each of the two tunnel solar driers installed at the center have capacity to dry I ton of high quality dried mango chips in one loading.  Processing provides an alternative of transforming unsold fresh fruits into shelf-stable products. Without processing facilities, farmers are often at the mercies of traders who take advantage of their desperation to buy the fruits at very low prices. It is our hope that this situation will change because farmers don’t have to sell their fruits since they have the option of processing. Moreover with high quality and access to markets, processed fruits and vegetables have better returns for the farmer than fresh (unprocessed) produce.
