NCPB Set to Merge with the Strategic Food Reserve

by biasharadigest

The National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) is set to merge with the Strategic Food Reserve, after the government announced a restructuring program of the sector, a move that seeks to enhance efficiency.

Agriculture CS, Peter Munya, says that in the restructured program, private millers will also be allowed to store their cereals at the NCPB, at a cost.

Furthermore, as KBC reports, NCPB facilities will undergo a revamp to increase capacity that will allow farmers and private millers to store their cereals at a fee. In the long run, this will ensure food security, in line with the government’s Big Four Agenda.
