New capacity supports accelerating demand in Kenya and enables new markets
KOKO’s first manufacturing facility of 60,000 square feet in Gujarat, India was commissioned in 2019 with a capacity of 20,000 KOKO Cooker Kits per month.
Kenyan customer demand has since outstripped this capacity, and in Q1 2021 the company commenced investment into its second facility, which is on track for commissioning in Q3 2021.
The combined facilities of 120,000 square feet have a production capacity of over 50,000 KOKO Cooker kits per month.
KOKO’s next-generation ethanol cooker delivers a safe and modern 2-burner experience, at less than half the price of other modern solutions. KOKO Fuel is ultra-low-carbon renewable bioethanol that is available from a dense Network of KOKO Fuel ATMs inside local shops a short walk from home.
Salil Bhargava, Managing Director of KOKO India commented: “We are extremely proud to have built our first factory in under 12 months, and to have safely managed operations through the uncertainty and disruptions caused by COVID-19. This additional investment enables us to expand our reach in Kenya and supply new markets.”
Greg Murray, Co-Founder and CEO of KOKO Networks, added: “Every year, the charcoal industry in Africa drives 5 million acres of deforestation, 1 billion tons of carbon emissions, and hundreds of thousands of deaths from indoor air pollution.
“The only way to reverse this destruction is to unleash and combine the power of technology, capital and consumer demand. Africa needs a renewable clean cooking fuel that delivers consumers a major uplift in quality of life at an affordable cost. This is what KOKO delivers, every day.”
