Kakuzi PLC to send second avocado shipment to China this week

Kenyan agricultural cultivation and manufacture company Kakuzi PLC has received pre-shipment approvals from the Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service (KEPHIS) for its second fresh avocado shipment to China. This time, Kakuzi will be shipping several 20-foot container loads to China by sea before the end of this week.

Kenya has a market advantage as it is the only approved African source market for fresh avocado fruits in China. Alongside Kenya, China counts several leading producers, including Mexico, New Zealand, Peru and Chile, as the approved exporters.

Kakuzi Managing Director Christopher Flowers said the containers were prepared and transferred to Mombasa over the weekend. Flowers said shipments to China are providing much-needed growth leverage for Kenyan produce and Kakuzi as it seeks to enhance its markets and product diversification strategy.
