KOKO Networks invest in cooking gas business

By Maureen Maingi

KOKO Networks has introduced its two-burner ethanol stove for love-income households. This marks a move into the cooking gas business for the energy solutions company.

The cookers retail at Sh7,000, and are manufactured and distributed from its factory in Nairobi. Customers will also receive a 2.3L refillable canister. They can refill canisters from any of the 700 Koko fuel outlets in Nairobi and its outskirts.



Koko’s chief customer officer, Leila Ibrahim, said at the launch yesterday: “Koko’s technology now exists for clean heat and modern living, delivered affordably.”

In June 2018, Vivo Energy, entered a deal with Koko to supply low income homes with ethanol cooking fuel. Ethanol remains one of the most affordable alternatives to charcoal, firewood and kerosene.
