Gitutu is one of four factories operated by the Aguthi Farmers Cooperative Society,
and is located in a highly productive growing area that is bordered by Mt. Kenya in
the west and the Abadare Ranges to the east. The F.C.S. has seven elected
committee members to represent its 4,000 total membership. The committee and
about 60 permanent factory staff oversee day-to-day operations with regards to
receipt of cherry, payment, and processing. About 800 farmers from Aguthi F.C.S.
deliver to this factory, and they own on average about 300 coffee trees each.
