Company background

Give details of when the company was founded and which industry it deals in Mount Elgon Coffee and Honey Co-operative Society Limited (MECHCSL) was established in June 2017 as an informal farmers group and officially registered by the Registrar of Cooperatives on November 12, 2017. After farmers from the Bugisu region started receiving low revenues from coffee sales and poor payment terms from the agents of exporting companies, a group of 34 pioneer farmers started the process of forming a farmer-owned coffee and honey social business organization. 

Their main aim was to overcome the burden of middlemen who were demanding high commissions, thus leaving member farmers unable to meet production costs. Additionally, member farmers had little access to farmer services like agro-inputs, credit, extension services, and training.
