Abstract:This chapter deals with food marketing in Coast Province. It discusses fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, coconuts, cashew nuts, maize, sugar and milk, respectively. Commodity flows from producer to consumer are described. Private traders, processors, co-operatives and parastatals are reviewed, with their roles in local, regional, inter-regional and international trade. Actors and institutions specialise along commodity lines and according to trade levels. Levels of competition differ from one commodity to another and evolve with changes in national policies.
