Kenyan exports suffer in cold weather

The Kenyan fresh produce industry is suffering from the bad weather conditions in Europe, which are causing delays in transportation for perishable goods. Flights in mainland Europe have been delayed and even cancelled, hitting the Kenyan fresh produce industry hard as they rely on aviation for most of their exports. Inland there have also been problems, with trains and lorries being delayed, causing produce to be wasted in transit or unable to be sent. Flowers, fruits and vegetable sales have also been hit by the reluctance of European consumers to leave their houses to shop. The winter season is usually the best for Kenyan exporters, with supplies being relatively protected from competition, and so there are fears for the future as long term contracts may be lost to other bidders during the cold snap.
