Vivid atmopshere at IFTEX 2015

After a casual starting day of the IFTEX 2015, the second day, yesterday was much more crowded. Thanks to the fact that growers and suppliers both participate and visit the event, there's an energetic vibe at the exhibition.

The Kenya Horticulture industry is one of the top foreign exchange earners for the country, generating Kshs 100.8 billion during the year 2014. The floriculture sector, a key component of horticulture exported 136, 601 metric tons valued at Kshs 54.6 billion in the same year. Those impressive figures aren't a surprise when you pay a visit to the exhibition. Booths are taken care of as usual and growers, importers and exporters fight in turn to present their loveliest creations.

It also becomes clear that the Kenyan sector is in full swing and development is going fast. Direct sales are an important topic and more and more growers are at least interested in them - but aren't sure about taking the step.

Today is the last day of the IFTEX 2015. Tomorrow it's still possible to visit the Breeder Open Days at WAC International. Check out the website for more information.
