Ethiopia: Minaye Flowers grows environmentally-friendly roses

The Minaye Roses nursery lies in splendid surroundings near the city of Debrezeit (Bishoftoo) in Ethiopia. The 1,950-metre height above sea level and the excellent climate make this location ideal for cultivating medium-sized, flowering roses. The 15-hectare nursery is surrounded by many characteristic acacias, most of which have been planted by Minaye Roses.

An environmentally-friendly nursery
After opening its doors in 2004, Minaye Roses has developed into a specialist in the production and export of quality roses over the last 10 years. Besides being environmentally-friendly, Minaye Roses is known for its high-quality products. Good treatment of its 450 personnel and the environment are important for the surrounding area. For environmentally-friendly production, Minaye makes use of the latest technology:
  • Natural enemies for combating plagues and diseases
  • Organic fertilisers
  • Organic Class-C pest control
  • Production of compost from green waste
  • Recycling of water and waste
In addition, Minaye has planted thousands of trees at the nursery and in the surrounding area.

Various organisations also recognize the efforts of Minaye in looking after the environment and surrounding area. Minaye Roses has received MPS-SQ, MPS-ABC and Fair Flowers Fair Plants certification.

Flower processing
For the processing and sales of roses, Minaye Roses works with the Amflora flower-processing company. Amflora is a division of Rosa Plaza, which in turn is a division of AQ Roses – also a preferred supplier of FleuraMetz. Amflor looks after the processing of the flowers, vase-life tests, product control and consultancy. In addition, they sell the roses produced by Minaye Roses.

Product range
The current Minaye Roses product range consists of medium-sized flowering roses: Athena, Espana, Candlelight, Dreamland, Furiosa, High Society, Lovely Jewel Moonwalk, Royal Jewel, Sanaa, Tucan, Upper Class, as well as various mixed bunches.
