Kenyan apple growers set out to expand global market share

Industry sources say Kenyan apple farmers will continue benefiting from both internal and external trading resources that are offered by the Kenya Apple Growers and Exporter Association (KAGEA). In a statement to mark the first 'Apple Fruit Day' in Nairobi, the association has reiterated its commitment to increasing Kenya’s production capacity and export markets through networking. It brought together hundreds of apple farmers across the nation.

The lobby also seeks to improve the farmers' incomes and job possibilities through high-quality apple cultivation and trade facilitation. The collaboration  of farmers under the association has attracted farmers from Ghana, Uganda and Zambia indicating a structured leadership that will make a valuable contribution to the African Union agenda in 2063.

According to the association, its partnerships and engagement with county governments will be critical in improving local capacity and know-how, profitability, sustainability and impact while ensuring the initiative’s long-term viability.
