Marketing channels for horticulture in Kenya


Acta Horticulturae (49): 43-49
Marketing channels for horticulture in Kenya
Two marketing systems are operating simultaneously in Kenya, viz. one connecting a large number of small-scale producers to the domestic market and the other connecting a small number of large-scale producers to the export market. Each system deals with a rather specific range of crops. The two systems are described in some detail. It is concluded that each system requires a special policy for its improvement.
