Kenya intends to increase its avocado exports to China by 10% annually over the next three years.
Chinese traders are actively seeking new import opportunities in the Kenyan market for avocados, explains Export Promotion Council’s CEO Peter Biwott.
“Chinese traders such as Shanghai Greenchain have set up an African office in Nairobi looking for opportunities.
“It has just been three months and this is a market that is being developed,” the publication quotes him commenting.
In May, the countries’ presidents signed a trade deal to enable Kenyan farmers export avocados to China.
