Kenya: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Kenya’s imports of consumer-oriented food products grew at an average annual rate of 13 percent between calendar years 2014 and 2018. Kenya’s import growth is attributed to a fast-growing middle class and expanding food service and food retail sectors. U.S. exports to Kenya shrunk by 11 percent within the same period. For U.S. exporters, the best prospective products include snack foods, dairy products, pasta, sauces and condiments, pet food, tree nuts, and specialized food ingredients. Bulk and intermediate products valued at US$ 36 million made up 82 percent of U.S. agricultural exports to Kenya in CY 2018. Kenya’s ban on genetically engineered foods is a primary barrier to U.S. agricultural exports.
