This report aims to improve the understanding of the viability of Kenyan small-scale growers in export horticulture chains that include EurepGAP compliance criteria. To this end a methodology has been devised and piloted in Zambia employing a survey tool based around understanding the costs and benefits of EurepGAP compliance. For this work a survey of the outline costs and benefits of producing export crops in Kenya was undertaken with the aim to help answer this cost-benefit question, indicate trends and illustrate incentives for SSG farmers to continue being part of EurepGAP.
