Importing from the economic center of East Africa


The climatic conditions in Kenya make the emerging country an ideal location for growing cut flowers, fresh fruits & vegetables and natural ingredients. Therefore, it is no coincidence that Kenya is the largest exporter of avocados and roses on the African continent. 

But there are even more good reasons for European companies to import products from our Kenyan partners, for example

  • efficient transport routes thanks to well-developed infrastructure
  • dynamic young companies with focus on export economy 
  • great diversity of the existing ecosystems, which leads to a great variety of products.

Some companies have already implemented internationally recognized standards such as GLOBALG.A.P, FSSC or ISO 22000.

You can look forward to uncomplicated and smooth trade relations with the evaluated IPD partners from Kenya. 

Your benefits

  • Young, dynamic companies - carefully selected and well prepared
  • Optimal growing conditions and good infrastructure
  • Certified products, also in organic quality
