Making Buy Kenya, Build Kenya Strategy Work for Local Agro-processors

This paper aims to inform the finalisation of the Buy Kenya, Build Kenya Strategy by suggesting provisions that can promote sustainable agro-processing in the country. Agro-processing holds the key to industrialisation, food security, creation of employment opportunities, and poverty alleviation in Kenya. However, in the face of rising competition from cheap imports, Kenya needs to leverage the Buy Kenya, Build Kenya strategy to develop agro-industries through consumption of local agro-processed products.
