List of Imports that European union has banned

On the list of restricted goods, which also included palm oil, cattle, soy, coffee, cocoa, lumber, and rubber, coffee, second largest Kenya's agricultural export, was listed.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2022, the European Commission made the decision, citing the items as the biggest causes of deforestation and subsequent climate change.

The ban will affect Kenya's new coffee farms, but the nation will still export a sizable amount of coffee to the EU.

The European Commission declared that nations that cultivate coffee in farms after 2020 will be automatically barred from doing so.

For the fiscal year that ended in June 2021, Belgium alone imported coffer worth Ksh6.5 billion, according to Statista (2022).

Only flowers, which account for 31% of EU exports, generate more foreign currency than coffee, which accounts for 12% of those.

Other significant coffee consumers in Europe who will suffer financially as a result of the ban include Germany and Switzerland.
