Kenya: Sugar Annual
Kenya’s sugar production is expected to increase in marketing year (MY) 2021/22 due to good weather, better agronomic and harvesting practices, and increased investments in mills. During the same period, consumption is forecast to rebound as hotels and restaurants reopen after COVID-19. Meanwhile, sugar imports are forecast to decrease following the capping of an import quota on sugar by the Government of Kenya (GOK) in January 2021. This event is also expected to lead to higher ending stocks in MY 2020/21.
