Newsletter Agriculture Kenya 2022 - 02

It is our pleasure to share with you our second newsletter for 2022. The last few months were eventful with the Agricultural Team going through some changes, and we did of course not sit still.  We were glad to be back at IFTEX Exhibition, where we were able to interact face to face again.

Sea freight as an alternative to air freight for perishables was high on the agenda, in the shape of practical seminars, flowers by sea conference and a published insights report. In addition, the Embassy and Kenya Flower Council signed a Framework of Cooperation geared towards sea freight

There have also been noticeable trends showing that the Kenya is ready or is already shifting to a circular economy / agriculture.

Lastly, we bade farewell to Ingrid Korving, the previous Agriculture Counsellor for Kenya and Tanzania, and we look forward to welcoming Bart Pauwels who will take over from her.

With kind regards, Elizabeth Kiamba (Agricultural Advisor) and Angela Swinkels (Agricultural Officer).
