The Government of Kenya has stated it intends to purchase 450 thousand tonnes of Ukrainian corn, according to a letter of the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs addressed to the Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry.
"The Government of Kenya decided to purchase 450,000 tonnes of yellow corn in Ukraine in March-May 2017," reads a report posted on the Ukrainian government’s official website.
The Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry calls on companies, which are interested in the supply of corn to Kenya, to inform the Ministry so that consolidated commercial offers from Ukrainian enterprises can then be sent to the Kenyan side.
The main requirement for corn imports to Kenya is the absence of GMOs and the availability of an EU certificate or the compliance with standards of the Kenya Bureau of Standards.
