Kenya has a population of about 54 million people and a gross domestic product (GDP) of about $109 billion. Kenya relies on imports of food and beverages to supplement its domestic demand and to diversify its consumption patterns. Kenya is one of the major access points in Africa and the huge volume of imports in the country gets re-exported to neighbouring regions. The import value of food and beverages to Kenya was measured at some 16.5 billion Kenyan shillings (KSh), roughly 142 million U.S. dollars. The main categories of imports of food and beverages for Kenya were maize, unmilled wheat and wheat flour, rice, sugar, fishery products, vegetable items, dairy products, edible oils and fats, coffee, tea and spices.
