(Ecofin Agency) - Kenya’s tea production increased by 15% during the first six months of 2018, the country’s tea directorate said. Figures from the organization showed that 230,000 tons were produced between January and June, up from 200,000 tons in H1 2017.

The uptick is mainly achieved thanks to good weather and abundant rainfall in most production areas. 

During the period, the country sold about 28,000 tons of leaf through Mombasa auctions, reflecting an increase by nearly 22% compared to the 23,000 last year.

However, mid-year average price fell to KSh276 per kilogram while the price was KSh300 in 2017. Let’s note that in Kenya, tea is grown on over 150,000 hectares.
