    Rising disposable incomes, growing foreign investor confidence and continued government investment in the infrastructural development of roads and energy, as well as a growing shopping centre culture will be instrumental in promoting grocery retailers in Kenya.

    Increased international interest in the Kenyan market, through direct investment from companies such as Walmart, Carrefour and Botswana's Choppies, have played a key role in promoting consumer confidence and spending as international brands entered the country to take maximum advantage of the retailing opportunity that Kenya presents.
