“We are positive this year and we hope to have better sales than last year,” Caroline Kaguora of Kandia said. “With the rains now, we anticipate to have big sizes and we are certain oil and moisture content will be okay,” Kaguora added.
Main season starts from middle of March until July. Usually, there is a second crop though not so much in quantity and sold over December and January. Small sizes of the avocados may have been a problem in the beginning of the season; however, fruits have attained more weights due to the delayed processing.
The main market of the product is France and the Netherlands. Expanding in other markets in Middle East and Asia is also a possibility.
Aside from avocados, Kandia also sells by small fraction or in bulk other products such as snow peas, sugarsnaps, Haricot verts, both red and green hot chillies, passion fruits, garden peas, runner beans, sugarcane, and bananas on stem.
A lot of effort is exerted by the medium sized company to ensure that they satisfy the demands of the market. Aside from the fact that Kandia is in social compliance and their systems comply with the set standards, the products that they sell are grown under good agricultural practices.
