Farmer’s Choice is the region’s largest producer of meat and meat products for both local and international markets. In 2009, Acorn was appointed as the Project Manager for a state-of-the-art Beef Abattoir that was to be developed on a green field site adjacent to Farmer’s Choice head office and pork abattoir in Kahawa West, Nairobi. The project involved complex installations including imported abattoir machinery, large refrigeration plants, compressed air systems, hot water and steam plants, waste treatment and biogas plants etc.
The project was developed to the Food & Agriculture Organisation of United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organisation (WHO) standards. The project was completed in May 2011 under budget and on time.
