The HORTI-GREEN project, entitled Inclusive Green Horticultural Processing Sector in Kenya (ENV/2017/391-383), is an action implemented by Fundación SUSTALDE (SUSTALDE, Spain, Coordinator), University of Nairobi (UoN, Kenya, partner), Consumer Information Network (CIN, Kenya, partner) and Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS, Kenya, partner).

The action was awarded a grant under the Switch Africa Green Programme, which is co-financed by the European Union.

The HORTI-GREEN project, which has an overall duration of 42 months, aims to foster the adoption of SCP practices in the Kenyan horticultural processing industry in order to support the transformation towards an inclusive green economy which generates growth, creates jobs and reduces poverty. To achieve this overall objective, the action is specifically aimed at equipping Kenyan Horticultural Processing MSMEs, eco-entrepreneurs and business service providers with the necessary knowledge and tools to promote and adopt SCP practices and seize green economy opportunities.
