Exhibitor profile

The Fresh Produce Exporters Association of Kenya (FPEAK) is Kenya's premier trade Association representing organisation representing growers, exporters and service providers in the horticulture industry.

Formed in 1975, when export horticulture was in its infancy, the Association has grown to become Kenya's foremost sectoral trade asociation. Members of the Association are involved in growing and/or exporting fresh cutflowers, fruits, and vegetables.

FPEAK provides a focal and coordination point for the horticulture export industry. We support growers and exporters by providing technical and marketing information and training, act as an information centre, and run active lobbying and advocacy programes to enhance the sector's competiveness.

FPEAK'S Vision and Mission

FPEAK structure
FPEAK is a legal entity registered as a company limited by guarantee. The activities of FPEAK are governed by an elected Board of Directors consisting of members actively engaged in exporting business.The Administrative body of the Association is formed by the secretariat, which is responsible for providing services to the members. The Association operates independently and receives support from partners.

At the PEAK of compliance - Kenya-Gap.
One of FPEAK's main activities is the development and implementation of Kenya Good Agricultural Practices (Kenya-Gap) protocol. Kenya-Gap is based on principles of responsible and sustainable agricultural practices that provide a universally acceptable standard, to which growers can be audited and certified against. Development of the protocol has involved wide stakeholder consultation through a National technical committee which has beeen intrumental in formulating the Interpretation guidelines and Quality Management System template.

Once benchmarked to Eurep-Gap, Kenya-Gap shall become an internationally recognized quality assurance scheme, customized to meet local farming conditions, taking on board the concerns of small scale farmers. For International buyers of Kenyan fresh produce, Certification against Kenya-Gap is an assurance of food safety, active environmental and social responsibility.
