Kenya Utalii College has signed an agreement that will see it develop and implement courses targeting livestock sector stakeholders.

The hospitality training institution entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Kenya Markets Trust (KMT) to design and implement technical courses. These include professional meat processing, food safety standards and certification, processing industry management skills and cold storage.

“Even as we continue to produce professionals in the hospitality and tourism industry, we appreciate the role of the livestock sector in supporting our industry,” said Acting Utalii Principal Kazungu Mwango.

“While tourism accounts for almost 40 per cent of Kenya’s GDP, the livestock sector contributes between 10 per cent and 12 per cent. Our relationship with KMT is mainly aimed at increasing professionalism within the livestock sector.”
