Fresh Insights Number 6. Impact of EurepGAP on small-scale vegetable growers in Kenya

Abstract

This report aims to improve the understanding of the viability of small-scale growers in Kenyan export horticulture chains that include EurepGAP compliance criteria. To this end a methodology has been devised and piloted in Zambia employing a survey tool based around understanding the costs and benefits of EurepGAP compliance. For this work a survey of the outline costs and benefits of producing export crops in Kenya was undertaken with the aim to help answer this cost-benefit question, indicate trends and illustrate incentives for small-scale farmers to continue being part of EurepGAP.

A shorter 2-page brief of this paper is available Fresh Perspectives Issue 2. Impact of EurepGAP on smallscale vegetable growers in Kenya.
