We are all preparing for our biggest selling week of the year….Valentines day.
All around the world people are exchanging flowers and gifts to show how much they care and the chances are that your delivery of Red Roses will come from Kenya
Kenya is the third largest exporter of cut flowers in the world, accounting for around 35% of all sales in the European Union.
Being on the equator Kenya has the benefit of year round warm climate and high altitude, helping produce high quality roses without the expense of heating greenhouses. Kenya also has excellent transport links to Europe, and from there, the rest of the world through Nairobi airport, which has a terminal dedicated specially to the transport of flowers and vegetables. This means that delicate floral cargo has the shortest supply chain from growers to consumers.
