Kenya: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS/Nairobi forecasts a slowdown in Kenya sugar sector in the marketing year (MY) 2020/2021, with a decrease in sugar production, imports, and consumption, due to the impact of local and global measures to contain the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Sugar production activities will be hit by disruption in labor and inputs supply, while imports will be affected by disruption of shipping logistics both in Kenya and at source markets. Consumption is also expected to dip due to depressed demand in the food and beverage service and manufacturing sectors.
