Thiririka FCS is the largest cooperative in Kiambu County. It has three different factories – Kiganjo, Githembe and Ndundu. Over the past two years, the cooperative has been involved in a project to renovate the infrastructure of the various washing stations. The washing troughs and tanks are being tiled and the metal drying tables are being made more robust.
After being delivered to the washing plant, the cherries are picked by hand. They are then crushed and the parchment is fermented overnight. The next morning, the parchment is washed and separated into P1, P2, P3 and P lights. The parchment is then dried for between 15 and 21 days.
The cooperative has employed three agronomists to train the farmers. An increase in productivity and quality has already been observed over the last two years. This is expected to increase in the future.
