7 Zimbabwe in the Market Kenya is the powerhouse of African export and supply to European markets, – from a parity position in the late 1990’s with Zimbabwe – Today, 3 dedicated freighter flights a DAY out of Nairobi vs. 3 shared freighter flights a WEEK out of Harare. Zimbabwe, along with Ethiopia, Uganda, Morocco and Zambia, plays a significant role in supplying market windows or product lines.

8 Opportunity In the last 2 years UK retailers more accepting of Zimbabwean product – Kenya has lost some of it’s positive shine in the world press – perception is important! Example: Mange Tout and snap peas – Desired from Southern Africa between April and October. – Kenya struggling with MRL (chemical residue) and duty (NPA) issues. – Definite shift in ordering from ZW, airfreight kg significantly up year on year (approx 30% per annum last two years)

9 Current - Horticulture European and UK vegetable consolidators are giving the Group an opportunity to supply: – Mange Tout and Sugar Snap Peas in winter – Baby Corn in summer Last year a total of 350 tonnes of Mange Tout and Sugar Snap Peas were supplied For 2015 the group has secured: – a 650 tonne off-take agreement for Mange Tout and Sugar Snap Peas with Van Oers United – A contract to supply 300 tonnes of Mange Tout and Sugar Snap Peas to Safari Fresh and Lonrho Fresh – Renewed supply contracts to SIIM International in France and Jacana Produce in the UK from last season
