Aug. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Corn prices in Kenya fell 20 percent this month on improved supply after the country received shipments of the grain from Zambia and Malawi, Business Daily reported.
The cost of a 2-kilogram (4.4-pound) bag of flour currently retails for an average of 120 shillings ($1.28) in the capital, Nairobi, compared with a peak of 150 shillings in July, the Nairobi-based newspaper said, citing Unga Group Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Nick Hutchinson.
The East African nation consumes 3.5 million 90-kilogram bags of the grain, its staple food, annually.
