Kenya to resume mango export to EU

Kenya has received a green light to resume mango export to the European Union.
This follows the Belgium visit by a delegation of government regulatory agencies and private sector in the horticulture industry at Brussels, late last year.
The team met and discussed with counterparts from the EU and the private sector equivalents on possible resumption of mango export to the European Union after a self-ban of seven years.

As result exports of mangos to EU is expected to start during the November– March 2022 season.

Benjamin Tito, director of the Horticulture Crops Directorate under the Agriculture and Food Authority, explained that the self-ban was imposed because in 2013 and early 2014, Kenya had a big problem of the mango fruit fly and the mango weevil.

He said there has been a significant reduction of the level of these pests and this is what has necessitated the country to think of re-entering the market once more.

In 2019, EU enacted a new regulation, EU 2016/2032 and EU 2019/2072 which provides four (4) options for exports of fruits to EU.

Upon assessment of the options, the technical working Group (TWG) settled on option (d) which provides for system approach or treatment of fruits destined to EU.

In 2020, Kenya applied to the EU for approval to resume Mango export.

In February 2021 EU approved the request thereby allowing the exports of hot water treated mango fruits.

In July 2021 the first consignment was successfully treated with hot water at
ICIPE and exported by air to Italy

The sample was inspected at destination and was compliant in both
phytosanitary and quality aspects.
