Kenya: Cargolite Open Day in pictures

On November 30, 60 people attended the Cargolite Open Day, that was held at the Oserian “go down” at NBO airport in Nairobi. Cargolite's preferred supplier and local agent Dodhia Packaging Kenya Ltd. opened the warehouse and Oserian gave a demonstration on the way to work with the Cargolite packaging concept.

Dodhia Packaging Kenya Ltd. participated in the open day as they have been chosen as the preferred supplier and local agent of the Cargolite components. DPKL opened the Cargolite warehouse, stocked with Cargolite components for the packaging concept. Farms can arrange with DPKL to pick up packaging material after offloading their flowers at the JKIA Cargo village.

At the event, Guy Symondson introduced the Israeli Ambassador to Kenya, Noah Gal Gendler and the Kenyan Flower Council Chairman, Richard Fox as the two main speakers.
