First Lady Opens Iftex 2015

"Kenya is an internationally acknowledged flower producing country"

The fourth edition of the IFTEX 2015 started this morning in Nairobi, Kenya. The International Floriculture Trade Expo was opened by Margaret Keyatta, the first lady of the Republic of Kenya. "I wish to reassure all the consumers of our highly acclaimed flowers that the country continuously strives for responsible and safe production of cut flowers. We also strive to protect and conserve the natural environment and promote the welfare of all farm staff for sustainability," she stated.

H.E. Margaret Kenyatta receives a new type of rose named 'Lady Margaret' in the First Lady's honour.

"I wish to appreciate the role of the Kenya Flower Council who have in recent years, sustained campaigns to promote a local culture for flowers.These promotions not only provide jobs amongst innovative and business-minded young Kenyans, but also showcase Kenya as an internationally acknowledged flower producing country."
"Key activities around Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and other social events including marriage ceremonies are never complete without flowers. Flowers bring a touch of eternity, joy, love and beauty to the world."

More growers
A remarkable growth in the number of flower growers participating since last year’s IFTEX can be noted at this year’s edition. And not only more growers from Kenya are signing up, but flower producers from other African nations as well.

With the increase of growers wanting to be part of IFTEX, the organizers created extra exhibit space in a new Hall at the lower floors of the Oshwal Center and this resulted in 50 more stand spaces for mainly flower growers. With this extension IFTEX 2015 will be the biggest edition since its launch in 2012. It is the wish of the organizer that IFTEX can grow towards a platform where African growers can meet with buyers from all over the world.
