Korean Company Donates peanut peeling machines to five counties

Korean company Banseok Industry Ltd, in collaboration with the Korea Trade Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA), has taken a significant step in enhancing peanut production in Kenya. The company provided peanut peeling machines to five counties, revolutionizing value addition and reducing post-harvest losses. This partnership aims to improve productivity and promote sustainable farming practices in the region.

The Advantages of Manual Peanut Peeling Machines

To streamline the peanut value addition process and ensure efficient production, Banseok Industry Company introduced manually operated peanut peeling machines to Tharaka Nithi, Migori, Kakamega, Kisii, and Homa Bay counties. These machines offer numerous benefits, including faster processing and minimized post-harvest losses. Farmers can now maximize their yields and optimize profits.

Promoting Sustainable Agriculture through Technological Innovations

Banseok Industry Company’s commitment to promoting sustainable farming practices is evident through its introduction of modern technologies. By repurposing the peanut shells as raw material for animal feed processing, waste is reduced, and the agricultural ecosystem becomes more sustainable. These innovative solutions allow Kenya’s farming industry to diversify practices and achieve long-term sustainability.

Enhancing Efficiency and Productivity for Farmers

Farmers can significantly enhance their efficiency and productivity by utilizing peanut peeling machines. With the capacity to thresh up to 180 kilos of peanuts per day, these machines revolutionize the traditional manual extraction process. By reducing labor and improving throughput, farmers can optimize their operations, increase acreage, and scale up peanut production.

Showcasing Cutting-Edge Technologies at Agritec Africa Exhibition and Conference

At the esteemed Agritec Africa Exhibition and Conference, Banseok Industry Company showcased its cutting-edge agricultural machinery. The event, themed “Improving Farmers’ Income Through Technology,” attracted exhibitors from 20 countries. Banseok’s booth garnered significant attention from oil seed and crop farmers across Kenya, highlighting the growing demand for advanced farming equipment in the region.

Benefits for Kenyan Farmers

The distribution of peanut peeling machines to the five counties directly benefits approximately 200 farmers. In Migori County alone, with an estimated 250 acres dedicated to peanut cultivation, post-harvest losses will decrease, resulting in higher yields and increased profitability. Empowering farmers with modern tools, Banseok Industry Company and KOTRA are facilitating the growth and success of Kenya’s agricultural sector.
