Kenya Plans Iran Tea Mission as U.S. Row Rages

Kenya will next month send its third tea trade mission to Iran in the last four years as it seeks to retain the Tehran market despite mounting challenges resulting from U.S. sanctions, according to the Director General of Agriculture and Food Authority, Anthony Muriithi. Iran remains one of the Kenya's key markets that pays a premium price for local tea, a move that has seen the country conduct several trade missions in defence of the market.
