Meru Cooperative Union


This particular picture was taken in 1955 and shows the recently formed Meru Cooperative Union members proudly showing off their newly purchased 5-ton lorry to haul Coffee. Schemes like this were designed to encourage local farmers to maximise the quality of their produce and gain a better price for their products.
