Kenyan fresh produce exporters have been urged to take advantage of the Kenya-UK economic partnership that was signed in January 2020 in order to increase the country’s market share in UK’s fresh produce imports. Kenya’s High Commissioner to the UK Manoah Esipisu said Kenya is committed to making sure the partnership bears fruit. At a meeting between the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry and UK based businesses, they discussed the various opportunities in the economic partnership. Statistics indicate that Kenya’s exports to the UK stand at about 49.5 billion Kenya shillings. Of these 43% comprise vegetables and 9% flowers. Despite the UK being Kenya’s 5th top export destination, after Uganda, Pakistan, USA and The Netherlands, a report by Oversees Development Institute states that trade between the two nations remains relatively stagnant.
