Green Farming Kenya

Program Information


Green Farming Kenya is a program for Dutch suppliers to the horticultural sector that are active in the export of goods, services, knowledge and advisory on the Kenyan market. The aim of the program is to promote the export of Dutch products to Kenya’s horticultural sector and improve the Dutch market share by collective actions. Besides that, also intensifying the co-operation between Dutch members and Kenyan companies and organisations in the areas of research, development and production is part of the goal.

AVAG, a representative of joint Dutch horticultural suppliers and DLV Plant, will coordinate the program for the coming three years. The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation will support the program. In addition to the cluster of businesses that are a member of Green Farming Kenya, also Wageningen University and Research Centre supports the program and is actively involved on the level of research and knowledge transfer.

  • Program pillars

  • The two main pillars of the program are

  • Holland Branding: demonstration of the possibilities and advantages of the implementation of a higher level of technology in products and services from The Netherlands in Kenya

  • Develop sustainable production systems in close cooperation with local partners that are economically and environmentally sustainable, that meet CSR demands and are custom made for the Kenyan sector

  • Program content

  • Green Farming Kenya has a budget to organise a broad spectrum of activities to promote Dutch horticultural suppliers on the Kenyan market during the period July 2010 to July 2013. The activities include:

  • Information studies, focussing on detailed market research, technology, logistics, juridical, fiscal or environmental topics

  • Collective representation at exhibitions and joint visits in both The Netherlands and Kenya

  • Seminars for Dutch or Kenyan parties on various topics relating to the program

  • Hiring of local advisors

  • Demonstration project in which the possibilities and advantages of the implementation of a higher level of technology in products and services from The Netherlands can be demonstrated in Kenya

  • Incoming and outgoing trade missions for Kenyan or Dutch parties

    During the course of the program projects on the level of government-to-government will be initiated as well. The projects will be based on the input of members companies. The most important components of the projects on G-to-G level will be economic diplomacy, knowledge transfer, capacity building and bilateral cooperation.
