Kenya: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

COVID-19 to disrupt Kenya’s grains supply chains. FAS/Nairobi forecasts the evolving COVID-19 pandemic will disrupt Kenya’s domestic and international corn-, wheat-, and rice- supply chains, with the no clear end. Corn and wheat production is forecast down in marketing year (MY) 2020/2021, while rice production is expected to stagnate. Whereas import options for wheat and rice are clear, corn exports to Kenya will be impeded by the import ban on genetically modified (GM) products. The ongoing exploration of alternative feed ingredients by Kenya’s feed manufacturers provides an option that could sustainably alleviate the supply gap. Commercial wheat imports from the United States are expected to rise after U.S and Kenya signed the certification protocol for export of the Pacific Northwest (PNW) wheat.
