Limuru Dairy Farmers Co-operative Society was registered under the Co-operative Act on the 28th of April 1962. Operations started in March 1963, with just seven members. We are located in the central highlands of Kenya, Kiambu county, Limuru sub-county popularly known for natural high-quality milk.

There was a gradual increase in membership to 76 members with one collection center, currently Route 1. 

In 1963 UNICEF supplied additional milk cans.

In 1964 the management opened a store for the resale of farm inputs, feeds, and milk cans which the farmers were getting at exorbitant prices from private businessmen.                                                              

In 1967 the society purchased its own land. In the same year, the society bought its first vehicle.

In 1984 construction work of the society’s head office was started and was completed in November 1986. This is a four-story building (MAZIWA HOUSE).

In 1987 the society, with the approval of the members and relevant government ministries started offering Artificial Insemination and Clinical services to members.

In 1997 Limuru Milk Processor began milk processing under the Limuru Fresh brand.


To Date:-                                                        

The membership over the years has since increased to over 3000 active milk suppliers with 37 milk centers collecting an estimated 30,000 liters of milk per day.

The society is wholly owned by the smallholder farmers who are the registered members with equal shares and hence equal rights. The supreme authority is vested in the members.

The society collects milk from the members digitally, confirms milk parameters, and bulks it in coolers strategically located in our milk collection zones.  The raw milk is transported to our factory where it is tested again for quality, weighed, recorded, and pasteurized.  The pasteurized milk is packed into 50 kg aluminum cans and sealed ready for transportation to our various outlets that include hospitals, schools, supermarkets, and milk bars among other outlets in Nairobi and its environs.
