Nuts and Oil Crops Directorate is an arm of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Authority (AFFA) mandated to develop, promote and regulate the nuts and oil crops industry in Kenya. Before the enactment of AFFA Act 2013 and Crops Act 2013, the role of developing, promoting and regulating the nuts and oil crops subsector was largely amorphous. In here Kenya Coconut Development Authority was tasked with the responsibility of developing, promoting and regulating the coconut industry while Horticulture Crop Development Authority, among other functions, focused on macadamia. The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries handled the rest of the nuts and oil crops.
Though this set up to some extent exploited the potential in the nuts and oil crops subsector, the desired results were not adequately achieved. It is on this basis among other issues that the government initiated reforms in the Agricultural sector. These reforms culminated into the enactment of AFFA Act 2013 and its attendant Crops Act 2013. These Acts subsequently gave rise to agricultural regulator, AFFA and its underlying Directorates. AFFAs inception was aimed at spearheading the development of scheduled crops in the agricultural sector. This was envisaged would negate for instance the amorphous way the nuts and oil crops subsector was being handled. The Nuts and Oil Crops Directorate assumed the mandate of the hitherto Kenya Coconut Development Authority. Other than coconut, this Directorate was added additional scheduled nuts and oil crops which are: macadamia, cashew nuts, oil palm; ground nuts; sesame; sunflower; safflower; castor bean; jojoba; linseed, and oil seed rape.
