The first consignment of Fresh Avocados from Kenya has hit the Chinese market. Kenya’s Ambassador to China Muthoni Gichohi attended the official hand-over ceremony of the first batch of Kenya’s fresh avocado export to China which also marks the very first export of such avocados from Africa. The event took place in Beijing, China.
The Ambassador affirmed Kenya’s commitment to supporting the business communities in both countries as they look forward to enhancing trade facilitation as well as market access of their products and services to China.
Dr. Wilfred Marube, Chief Executive Officer, Kenya Export Promotion and Branding Agency: “Kenya aims to export over 100,000 tonnes of avocados. The 1.4 billion population in China is a huge market for Kenya not only for avocados but also for other fresh produce such as mangoes and bananas.”
