Kenya: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KE2022-0004

Post forecasts Kenya’s sugar production will decrease 4 percent in marketing year (MY) 2022/23 from 690,000 metric tons (MT) to 660,000 MT due to lower sugarcane yields as high fertilizer prices trigger lower application. MY 2022/23 consumption is forecast to increase 5 percent to 1.15 million metric tons (MMT) as consumers return to Kenya’s hospitality and restaurant sectors following the removal of COVID-19 restrictions. Post forecasts Kenya’s imports will rise from 375,000 MT in MY2021/22 to 500,000 MT in MY 2022/23 to offset lower production and to supply higher consumer demand. A sugarcane production, supply, and distribution (PSD) table is included for the first time.
