Uganda: Rosebud dominates flower exports

When Zimbabwe crumbled and halted dominating the export of flowers to Europe, Rosebud, Uganda's largest exporter of roses commanding around 35% of Uganda's rose-export market, popped out to fill the gaps, according to East African Business Week.

“Rosebud has a high regard for quality which has reinforced the company as the major resort in the Ugandan market for buyers across the world,” says director Meera Ruparelia. “The greenhouses cover a total of 42 hectares producing and exporting over 9 million stems per month.”

Commanding 40% of the roses export, the company based in Entebbe, remains the country's largest exporter of the product. The greenhouses on the farm covers a total of 50 hectares producing and exporting over 12 million stems per month.
