The Cost Of Kenyan Avocados In Arab Emirates

The growth of the Agricultural sector in Kenya has placed the country on the global map as a leading producer of top products like Kenyan avocados.

Though the export market is not completely tapped, the cost of avocado fruit shows how best Kenyan products do outside the country as compared to within the borders.

Avocadoes for export are harvested before maturity to increase their life required for transportation and sale in the market outside the country.

The Kenyan avocados in the local market cost between Ksh 5 to Kshs 20 depending on size. After export, the price goes high to approximately 14 Dirhams for a 500g piece of Kenyan avocados.

This is approximately KSH 426 compared to the average exchange rate of 1 Dirham – Ksh30.

It is this variation in price that farmers feel exploited and would wish to venture into the international market. Kenyan avocados fruits grow under optimum temperature hence fetching high in the market.

Farmers have the capacity to fetch from the international market by accepting to adjust and form an organization.

By coming together, the farmers will be able to air their grievances and will be able to do away with the middlemen who are exploiting them and be able to earn handsomely from their farm produce.
