Mr Oparanya noted that the move will be beneficial to both the farmers and the millers who will be segmented into five major regions. Upper western region - which involves farmers from Kakamega, Trans Nzoia and Bungoma counties - will deliver their cane to Nzoia, Butali and West Kenya sugar companies. On the other hand, those from lower western will take their cane to Mumias, Ole-Pito and Busia sugar companies.
