Tea sector earnings to touch a five-year record – Daily Nation [October 2010]

“The performance is quite tremendous in terms of production volumes and foreign exchange earnings,” Tea Board of Kenya managing director, Sicily Kariuki, told a media briefing in Nairobi.

Currently, tea is Kenya’s second foreign exchange earner after horticulture, while tourism is third.  Up to August, Kenya exported 292 million kilos, which is higher than the 225 million kilos recorded during the same period last year.  Egypt remains the leading export market for Kenyan tea accounting for 23 per cent of total export volume.  However, the UK, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Sudan are key markets accounting for 72 per cent of total volumes exported.
