Kianyaga Factory

Nyaga is a Kikuyu name for ostrich. The area was known because it was the only place you could find an ostrich. The factory was then named after the village, Kianyaga. It was opened for processing in 1966. 

The Baragwi FCS is the biggest society in Kenya. Today, they operate 12 washing stations and work with over 15,000 members. Their factory managers work for a different factory every two years so that they can share knowledge and be very consistent.
