Welcome to Nuts and oil crops Directorate
Nuts and Oil Crops Directorate is an arm of Agriculture and Food Authority (AFA) mandated to develop, promote and regulate the nuts and oil crops industry in Kenya. Before the enactment of AFA Act 2013 and Crops Act 2013, the role of developing, promoting and regulating the nuts and oil crops subsector was largely amorphous. In here Kenya Coconut Development Authority was tasked with the responsibility of developing, promoting and regulating the coconut industry while Horticultural Crops Development Authority, among other functions, focused on other horticultural crops including macadamia. The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries handled the rest of the nuts and oil crops.
