Issue 10: Denial of Market Access by Kenya for Dairy Products from Uganda

Challenge: Kenya authorities have denied access of milk products (Lato) from Pearl Dairy Farm Limited (Uganda) into Kenya market. This has been done by denial on issuance of import permit, impounding milk products (Lato) from warehouses and trucks, claiming that the products are substandard, counterfeit, smuggled into Kenya and not meeting EAC Rules of Origin criteria

Members Affected: Peal Dairy Farm Limited, Milk Farmers in Uganda and Milk Consumers in Kenya

Status Update: EABC has written to EAC Secretariat requesting for a regional intervention given that the issue has taken so long to be resolved through Bilateral (Uganda & Kenya) intervention.
