Sugar Annual Report, Kenya – 23rd April 2019
23rd April 2019
FAS/Nairobi forecasts stagnant sugar production in marketing year (MY) 2019/2020 due to delayed privatization of Kenya’s state-owned sugar mills, poor investments in production technology, and poor cane harvests. Sugar consumption, meanwhile, is expected to rise. The resultant deficit will be met by carryover stocks and duty-free imports from Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) countries.
