The Kenya Agricultural Commodity Exchange (KACE) was set up in July 1997 to provide market information and services to buyers and sellers in Kenya, the Eastern Africa region and internationally. Based at the Jamhuri Park Nairobi Show Ground, the KACE trading floor operates three days a week and covers all agricultural commodities. KACE offers the following services: - Identifying sellers able to guarantee desired products and volumes; - Finding a buyer without the seller physically bring the commodity up for sale; - A clearing house. Clients of KACE include farmers, traders, processors, buyers, sellers, exporters, importers, wholesalers and retailers. KACE's monthly publication Commodity Market Outlook, includes topical articles, commodity price updates, detailed price trends covering seven markets in Kenya, and a directory of buyers and sellers with volumes and delivery requirements. With the current emphasis on market-led development intended to ensure the growth of the private sector, KACE has proved a valuable reference for initiatives in other regions, including West Africa.
