The factors that the Fresh Produce Exporters Association of Kenya (FPEAK) believe have contributed to the growth of the horticultural sector over the last decade are a favourable equatorial climate - which means that products can be grown all year round -, the presence of different ecological zones which enable a varied cultivation, fertile soil and a well educated, not too expensive population. " To ensure that the quality of the products are maintained after harvest, exporters use modern technology," says FPEAK. "With two international airports in Nairobi and Mombasa and an international port we can ship fresh vegetables to all corners of the world easily and quickly."
"Kenyan vegetables are predominantly of high quality. The supply is pretty much constant, also the sales of some vegetables slows down sometimes. There is always space for extension, especially for the baby vegetables, which are becoming increasingly popular in Europe."
