Kenya: Sugar Annual

Commodities

FAS/Nairobi forecasts an increase in sugar consumption and no change in production in the marketing year (MY) 2015/2016. The supply deficit will be met by stocks and imports. Imports are forecast to remain at MY 2014/2015 levels as the Government of Kenya (GOK) puts measures to curb illegal imports. The GOK is also expected to use the one-year import safeguard extension granted by the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) to improve efficiency in the industry, including the long promised privatization of the state owned sugar mills.
