Kenya lifts poultry ban for 3 large Ugandan export firms

What you need to know:

  • Kenya has partially lifted the ban on the products from the neighbouring country after an eight-month embargo that saw chicken and eggs locked out of the Sh500 million market following the outbreak of avian influenza disease.
  • The Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries in Uganda confirmed the first outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza in January.
  • This led to Kenya banning importation of poultry and poultry products from Uganda to prevent the spread of the disease into the country.

Three large Ugandan firms are set to make millions after they were exclusively allowed to bring poultry products into Kenya.
