Kenya Horticulture Competitiveness Project (KHCP)

This project supports smallholder producers to improve production and agro-processing practices and link them to sustainable markets, resulting in increased household income and increased household food security and nutrition. The project works to address low on-farm productivity, high post-harvest losses, minimal value-addition, and inefficient marketing systems. The private sector contributes technical assistance, financial resources, and horticulture market network information. The Kenya Horticulture Competitiveness Program and Fresh Produce and Exporters Association of Kenya (KHCP-FPEAK) partnership is one example of PPPs providing financial assistance of up to 1 million focusing on infrastructure development at the Practical Training Centre (PTC) and nation-wide training targeting farmer awareness on compliance to the Kenya GAP standards.
