Bananas and broccolis are are easier for farmers to export as they do not face strict restrictions

Kenyan banana and broccoli growers are expected to seize opportunities in the South Korean market after the two countries struck a sales deal.

Trade PS Johnson Weru said the two products are easy for farmers to export as they do not face strict restrictions, such as pest risk analysis, as is the case with other fresh commodities for export.

However, Weru noted that the products should be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate from a competent authority in Kenya.

Weru urged counties to refer any interested parties to Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service (Kephis) for the issuance of these certificates.

Kephis managing director Theophilus Mutui said they are ready to deal with interested parties for the certificates.
