Innovative Coconut Value Chain
During The Coconut Conference Held at Kilifi Convention Centre

Presented by: Mwalimu Menza
Senior Research Scientist, Industrial Crops Research Institute, KALRO - Mtwapa
•Agriculture remains the backbone of Kenya’s
economy directly contributing 30% of the
annual GDP and another 27% indirectly
•Youth participation is still low
•Approximately 64% of the unemployed
Kenyans are youth

Value addition
• Wide range of coconut
value added products
(over 100)
Early maturing Hybrid

Intercropping with
short duration high
value crops
