Moisture Meters for better Standards in Coffee
MARKUP, through the International Trade Centre (ITC), distributed moisture meters to coffee companies in Kenya at the offices of agribusiness service provider Coffee Management Services (CMS) on 30 September 2020. The distribution was officiated by the Director General Agriculture & Food Authority Mr. Muriithi.
Sustained standards and compliance with quality requirement right from the coffee farm are paramount to the marketability of Kenyan coffee. If farmers can ensure to deliver coffee with the right moisture content, there will be less rejections, less post-harvest losses and better markets for better quality produce.
