Our Strategic Plan (2009-2014)

The sugar industry plays a significant role in socio-economic development of the Kenyan economy. The sector directly supports 200,000 small-scale farmers who supply over 85 percent of the cane milled by the sugar companies. An estimated six million Kenyans derive their livelihood directly or indirectly from the sugar industry.

The industry is estimated to employ some 12,500 Kenyans in sugar plantations and sugar factories. In addition, the industry saves Kenya in excess of US$ 250 million in foreign exchange annually. Other benefits accruing from the industry are social amenities such as schools, roads and bridges, health facilities provided to the communities by the sugar companies
and outgrower institutions. Recognizing the importance of the sector, the Government and the private sector have
been involved in the promotion of the industry through direct investments mainly on factories for processing cane and other related infrastructure. Download our 2009-2014 Strategic Plan
