Background

Established in 1997, Nini Flowers was one of the first bespoke farms in Kenya. By 2000, it had 20 hectares of farmland and built a very strong brand at the Dutch auctions via the TFA.

In 2000 The Coulson Family purchased the neighbouring Lamorna farm, which was developed by Billy and Fiona Coulson. This additional 21 hectares has been exclusively marketed by The Flower Hub into the Retail Multiple Sector.

Since 2011 this has been a 44 hectare business, which markets 90 million stems per year. By 2015, Nini will have pulled out of the auctions altogether and have 100 million stems available per year.
