Australian mining firm Base Titanium has partnered with farmers in Kenya’s Kwale county to construct a ginnery, a landmark $897,039 project for the revival of cotton farming in the country. The ginnery, to be located within a business park, aims at improving farming, ginning and garment production and is likely to be begin operations by 2019 first quarter.

Base is working with locals through Kwale’s Pamba and Viazi cooperative (PAVI), according to a report in a financial journal from East Africa.

The ginnery will support the miners’ cotton farming initiative launched in the area in 2014 under its community development programmes.
Base is planning to have at least 10,000 small-scale farmers involved in the programme by 2020.

The project has received backing from the Kenyan Government as well. The ginnery will feature six gins with a capacity to process up to 1,800 kg of cotton per day and capable of producing about 600 kg of lint each. (DS)
