Introduction

Maize is the most important staple food in Kenyans’ diets, providing roughly a third of the caloric intake for Kenya’s population. It is also the central crop in Kenyan agriculture, being grown by 98% of Kenya’s 3.5 million smallholder farmers. Developing appropriate maize marketing and trade policies in the context of a growing structural deficit in maize and ever shrinking smallholder farm sizes requires a detailed understanding of the organization and performance of Kenya’s maize value chain. This study describes the operation of Kenya’s maize value chain two decades after the liberalization process began.
