Kenya: Sugar Annual

Commodities

FAS/Nairobi forecasts Kenya’s sugar production to remain flat in the marketing year (MY) 2017/2018 due to continued poor performance of the state-owned sugar milling plants. Consumption is however forecast to increase and the resultant shortfall will be offset by an increase in imports. The import safeguard that limits duty free sugar imports from the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) countries remains in place.
