Gatomboya is a Kikuyu word meaning swamp due to the swampy area, which made it a good arrow root cultivated area. It was built in 1987 and in 1996, joined Barichu Farmers Co-Operative Society.. Gatomboya collects cherries from about 698 smallholders for processing.
The factory has partnered with Coffee Management Services (CMS), for its agronomic ventures. The long term goal is to increase coffee production through farmer training, ready access to inputs, Good Agricultural Practice seminars, and providing updated printed materials on sustainable farming. Paying the producers the highest possible returns sets the momentum for optimum coffee production.
