A report created by German Food Partnership (GFP-PIA) examining the potato processing industry in Kenya.

Potato is the second most important food crop in Kenya after maize. It is cultivated by over 800,000 growers who are mostly smallholders. Potato contributes greatly to the household income of growers, and the industry employs close to three million people.


It is for this reason that the German Food Partnership Potato Initiative Africa (GFP-PIA) is supporting the development of the potato value chain in Kenya. In order to identify local project partners, GFP-PIA commissioned a study to profile potato processing companies in Kenya.
