Mombasa International Show

The Mombasa International Show (MIS) was established in 1903 and is situated on the North Coast of the Coastal Resort City of Mombasa. This year EATTA participated in the Mombasa International Show under the ambit of AFA. The theme for the Trade Fair this year was “Enhancing Technology in Agriculture and Industry for Food Security and National Growth”, in other words . “Kuimarisha Teknologiaya Kilimo na Viwanda Ili Kujitosheleza Kwa Chakula Na Ustawi Wa Taifa”

AFA in conjunction with EATTA had the opportunity to showcase different Kenyan Crops and visitors to the show were not disappointed as they got an opportunity to sample some of the Kenyan Teas showcased at the sampling stand. This year AFA managed to scoop three awards in three different categories as below:

  1. The best Regulatory Authority Stand – 1st Position
  2. The best stand in Agro-processing and Value Addition – 2nd Position
  3. The best Stand that Best Interprets the Show Theme – 3rd Position
