Kenya eyes to increase coffee production by 49000MT in 2024

Kenya is looking to increase coffee production by 49,000 metric tons (MT), highlighting the state’s ambition to revive the sub-sector.
Currently, the country produces 51,000 metric tons (MT) of coffee annually.

Government spokesperson Isaac Mwaura said yesterday that William Ruto’s administration seeks to achieve the above by 2025.

Meanwhile Machakos, Kajiado, Taita Taveta, Kirinyaga County and Muranga coffee farmers are set to receive their share of the 6 billion shillings support that is meant to go into the Coffee Cherry Advance Revolving Fund as well as into production.

Government spokesperson Isaac Mwaura announced yesterday that the distribution began in Makueni County and will be extended to all 37 coffee-producing countries.

The disbursement of the fund is part of the government’s commitment to reviving the coffee sub-sector.
