Kenya: Coffee Annual

Commodities

FAS/Nairobi forecasts Kenya's coffee production to remain at 900 thousand sixty-kilogram bags in the marketing year (MY) 2015/2016. Production in newly planted and rehabilitated smallholder areas is expected to be balanced by the loss of large plantations in the suburbs of Nairobi to real estate developments. County governments in the coffee growing regions are at various stages of enacting new coffee production and marketing regulations, following the devolution of agricultural production and marketing functions under the Kenya’s constitution of 2010 from the national to county governments.
