Kenya: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Kenya’s imports of consumer-oriented food products grew at an average annual rate of 11 percent between 2015 and 2019. The import growth is attributed to a growing middle class with high purchasing power, changing consumer tastes and preferences, and increased urbanization. U.S. exports to Kenya shrunk by 13 percent within the same period. For U.S. exporters, the best prospective products include dairy products, alcoholic drinks, snack foods, tree nuts, sauces and condiments, pasta and processed cereals, and pet food. Bulk and intermediate products valued at $47.2 million made up 89 percent of U.S. agricultural exports to Kenya in 2019. Kenya’s import ban on genetically engineered foods is an additional barrier to U.S. agricultural exports.
