Mumias Sugar to revive ethanol division to diversify revenue streams

Mumias Sugar Company will revive supplying the market with ethanol after a five-month absence, using imports of molasses from Tanzania to supplement its limited stock.

Chief executive officer Nashion Aseka says the processing started last week as the company eyes to grow its revenue by diversifying to other streams.

The company is producing 187,000 litres of ethanol. It operates only four days in a week due to shortage of sugar cane.
