Welcome to Muhoroni Sugar Company

Muhoroni Sugar Company Limited (MUSCO) is a Sugar Manufacturing firm engaged in sugarcane growing, processing and marketing of sugar .The Company was incorporated in 1964 under an Act of Parliament Cap 441; and started operations in 1966 with an initial factory capacity of 800 Tons Cane per Day (TCD). The milling capacity was first expanded to 1,800 TCD in 1978 and further to 2,200 TCD in 1990. The Company is owned by the Government of Kenya (82.78%), UKETA Ltd. (16.86%) and (0.36%) private shareholders. Since inception the company has achieved remarkable growth despite the challenges brought about by liberation of the sugar industry and ageing machinery. These challenges led to it being placed under protective receivership in the year 2001.


The company has been under protective receivership since 2001 with the main objective of preserving the assets while restructuring the balance sheet with the intention of the Government divesting (privatization) to allow for private investment in its modernization.


The receivership has led to a turnaround in the fortunes of the company. The company has an installed capacity of 2200 tons of cane crushed per day. The company has strived to improve its management system and ensure continuity through achievement and implementation of the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system.
