Horticulture Production in Kenya

Kenya exports commodities worth Sh100 billion (€857 million) every year to the EU market. The horticulture industry contributes 23% to the country’s GDP.

This comprises the production of fruits, vegetables and flowers. The average annual growth rate of 20% in the sub-sector underscores the demand of Kenya’s high quality produce in the world markets. The sub-sector is mainly large-scale and private sector-dominated, with a small percentage of small-scale farmers. It employs about 2 million people, and accounts for up to 23% of all agricultural exports.
