Important Update on Kenyan Avocado Exports!

Kenya’s government has recently imposed a ban on exporting unripe avocados, a step aimed at safeguarding the country’s global reputation in the avocado market. 🌍

While this move is a positive one for maintaining high-quality standards, it’s important to acknowledge potential downsides. The ban may pose challenges for local farmers who rely on exporting their avocados, impacting their livelihoods. It could also disrupt the delicate avocado ecosystem as the market adjusts to the changes. 🌳🌾

” In a notice on Tuesday, the Horticultural Crops Directorate (HCD) suspended the export of Hass, Pinkerton, Fuerte, and Jumbo avocado varieties by sea starting November 3, 2023.

The directorate has, however, cleared air shipment of avocados, including those in transit from other East African Community (EAC) countries. “

As we support this initiative to maintain top-notch avocados, let’s also keep in mind the need to find a balance that benefits both farmers and our environment. 🇰🇪
