Kenyans exporting and importing food crops will start paying a new levy from July 1, 2024. The Agriculture and Food Authority (AFA) announced the timeline for the imposition of the levy, which is outlined in the Crops (Food Crops) Regulations 2019. The regulations aim to promote, develop, and regulate the production, processing, and trade of scheduled food crops.

The levy will be imposed on various food commodities, including cereals, legumes/pulses, and roots and tubers. Importers will pay 2% of the customs value for cereals and legumes, while exporters will pay 0.3% for cereals and 0.3% for legumes. For roots and tubers, importers will pay 1% and exporters will pay 0.3%. The revenue generated from these levies will be reinvested into the sector to improve infrastructure, research, and development[1][2][3].
