Flower exports earned Kenya $420 million in four months

Flower exports earned Kenya Sh42.59 billion (420 million USD) in the first four months of this year on account of good rains and quality standards.

Market data from Kenya National Bureau of Standards shows a 40.41 per cent increase in sales from Sh30.33 billion (300 million USD) over the same period of last year.

The total value of flowers exported for the first four months represents more than half the value of the exports in 2017.

The horticulture sector has kept an improved performance in the recent years attributed to compliance with the export market requirements by majority exporters especially to the European Union. This has also been promoted by Kenya Horticulture Council launched in 2017 to support the industry in complying with various international market standards and address the existing threats of documentation, tariff barriers and non-tariff barriers.
