Almost a year after the owner of a giant camel milk processor Vital died in Nanyuki, hurting its operations, another plant has been set up in the same town.

The entrepreneur, Jama Warsame, has teamed up with John Oguk, a former employee of Vital, once a thriving processor owned by German Holger Marbach who died in December 2016.

Mr Oguk is the general manager of the new milk firm WhiteGold.

Mr Warsame, who has been living outside the country for a long time, says he wants to turn around the lives of the herders and ranchers who supplied camel milk to Vital, a leading company in East, central and Southern Africa, but were yet to find alternatives after the collapse of Vital.
