The New Irati Factory Mill is managed by the Kangiri Co-operative which was established in 1969. Murang'a County's coffee growing region is located southwest of Mt. Kenya on the eastern foothills of the Aberdare Range. Smallholder farmers grow their coffees in this region on plots averaging half an acre (250 trees). This Kangiri Co-op continually works to improve the quality and quantity of their coffees.
