Kenya: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS/Nairobi forecasts a 30 percent increase in Kenya’s sugar production in marketing year (MY) 2018/2019 following a recovery from drought in the main sugarcane growing areas. Local supply will, however, still fall short of rising consumption and Kenya will rely on imports to cover the shortfall. Kenya’s safeguard that limits duty-free sugar imports, which is granted by Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Secretariat, will expire in early 2019, and the sugar sector will be eager on a decision of a possible extension.
