About the research group
Consumers in Europe have learned to appreciate the quality of Kenya’s fresh agricultural produce over the last decade. The achievements of its horticulture sector, which engages over half million farmers, are impressive and the country’s agricultural exports have reached US$1 billion annually. However, the sector is currently segmented into two sub-sectors: a modern and innovative programmed and a more traditional non-programmed. The project ‘Productive Employment in the Segmented Markets of Fresh Produce’ will study the labour market conditions in each of these sub-sectors by employing the avocado sector as a case-study.
