Bomet Delegation Visits Kenya Embassy Tehran

A delegation of ten senior officials from the Bomet County Government led by His Excellency Governor, Dr. Hillary K. Barchok visited the Islamic Republic of Iran from 11th to 19th October, 2020. During their visit, the delegation held several meetings/discussions with government officials and private stakeholders, deliberating on the challenges faced in the Iranian market for tea export. Further, opportunities for Kenyan farmers to diversify export product to coffee, bananas, avocados and mangoes among others were discussed.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the top consumer of tea in the world and the demand for tea has continued to grow. Kenya’s exports to Iran are single product driven; Tea accounts for over 90 percent of Kenya exports to the country. Besides other counties in Kenya, 80% of Bomet residents do farming and 75% of the farms are tea plantations.
