Kenya offers what Europe wants


Like no other country in Africa, Kenya benefits from an excellent infrastructure. When it comes to exporting goods to Europe, the distances are short.
The high quality of Kenyan agricultural products has also gained recognition among European buyers. 

Take advantage of this opportunity. We support you in exporting these products to Europe:

  • Fresh fruit & vegetables (such as avocados, passion fruit, mangoes, peas, beans or fresh herbs) are in high demand in Europe. 
  • Natural ingredients (e.g. herbs & spices, speciality teas, oils or nuts) have enormous export potential. 
  • Cut flowers: As Africa's largest exporter of roses, Kenya is an interesting procurement market for European importers.
    But a wide variety of summer flowers as well as Alstromeria, Craspedia, Hypericum and Solidago are also good sellers.   
  • IT products and solutions: There is a shortage of IT specialists in Europe and at the same time the demand for digital applications such as apps, websites, etc is increasing. 

As you can see for yourself: The opportunities to gain a profitable foothold on the European market are manifold. 

IPD is also represented at a local office in Kenya. This makes it easier for you to establish contact and accelerates your leap into Europe. We will help support you in marketing your products in Europe.  

Your advantages

  • Targeted contact brokering with European importers
  • IPD office on site enables direct contact
  • Comprehensive preparation for the European market
  • Participation in European trade fairs, virtual b2b events etc.
