A Sh7.5 billion infrastructural upgrade at Moi International Airport has led to increased export of fresh produce. The upgrade at Kenya’s second-largest airport included the cargo terminal, cold room replacement of the airfield, ground lighting systems, and approaching lighting masts.
According to the Fresh Produce Consortium of Kenya (FPCK) Chief Executive Officer, Okisegere Ojepat, the upgrading of the airport is a major boost to Kenya’s export of fresh produce to the international market. Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service (Kephis) Coast Regional Manager Thomas Kosiom said there has been a steady rise in exports of fresh produce ranging from chilies, French beans, flowers, avocados, and pineapples through the international airport.
