Kenya: Coffee Annual
Kenya’s MY2022/23 coffee production is forecast to decrease by 10 percent to 700,000 bags due to lower yields caused by reduced fertilizer application. MY 2022/23 area planted is anticipated to remain flat at 105,000 hectares as new plantings are curtailed by a shortage of coffee seeds. Post estimates MY 2022/23 exports will decline to 670,000 bags from 750,000 bags due to lower production. MY 2022/23 domestic consumption is expected to increase slightly as demand growth driven by the hospitality sector is curtailed by lower consumer purchasing power due to high inflation.
