Kenya’s tea export earnings to grow in 2013

29 January 2013, 11:44

Nairobi - Kenya’s tea export earnings are projected to rise by 4 percent to KES 116 billion in 2013, according to industry regulator Tea Board of Kenya (TBK), which attributes growth to the good weather conditions expected in the first half of the year, Capital News reports.

The board’s Managing Director Sicily Kariuki revealed that in 2012, Kenya recorded a 2 percent drop in production compared to 2011 due to adverse weather conditions during certain times of the year, but noted that export volumes increased by 9 million kilograms to 430m kilos in 2012, with 2013 expected to produce more.

Kariuki went on to add that production will grow by a marginal 1 percent to the end of the year, largely on account of favourable weather conditions that will spill over from December to the first half of the year,” she said.
