Fifth IFTEX kicks off in Kenya

"The Kenyan floriculture isn't just doing well, but is also still a promising industry." With these optimistic words, HPP-director Dick van Raamsdonk opened the Kenyan exhibition IFTEX this morning. In Kenya over 3000 hectares of land is under flower production and by that, the Kenyan flower sector contributes 35% of the international flower market. Despite the world’s unstable economical and financial environment, Kenya is still one of the few countries in the world where the floriculture industry is growing.

A small impression of this morning. Dick van Raamsdonk opened the exhibition, showed Ruud Knorr on Twitter. Top left: Kenyan grower Suera Flowers brought their finest produce. Bottom left: of course Koppert Biological Systems is present to tell all about their IPM solutions.

The IFTEX celebrates its 5 year anniversary this year. In this period, the exhibition already reached the number one position of being the largest cut flower trade fair in Africa. According to the organisers, it will this year as well become the largest cut flower trade exhibition in the world. Well over 200 companies are exhibiting and more than 4,000 national and international trade visitors are expected to attend. Also our FloralDaily team is present to make a full photo report of the show and to hear all about the novelties and innovations.
