Kenya: Government of Kenya Exempts Duties for Conventional Animal Feed Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KE2021-0019

On December 10, 2021, the Government of Kenya announced it would grant exemptions to tariffs on non-genetically-modified (GM) feed ingredients in response to rising feed costs. Exemptions were granted to 18 Kenya millers for yellow maize, soy meal, soybeans, cottonseed cake, sunflower seed, white sorghum, and fish meal. According to local sources, the exemptions are unlikely to lower prices due to limited global supplies of non-GM feed ingredients.
