Kenyan horticulture exports up 6.4%

In the eleven months to November, Kenyan horticulture earnings grew by 6.4 percent to Sh8.7 billion compared to the corresponding period last year. Obviously, there was increased demand for Kenyan produce in the world market.

According to Directorate of Horticulture head Benjamin Tito, Kenya earned Sh145.4 billion between January-November, up from Sh136.7 billion last year. The higher demand for Kenyan fruits, vegetables and flowers pushed up the volumes by 30 percent in the period, which helped to boost the earnings despite lower average export prices compared to those seen in 2020.

Vegetable volumes rose to 65.13 million kilos from 34.38 million kilos in 2020. The value also increased from Sh13.9 billion in 2020 to Sh23.78 billion in the period.
