Kenya: Flower Business Park to double production

The largest flower business park in Naivasha has announced plans to expand and double its production starting from next year. 

Currently, Flower Business Park (FBK) which is home to seven flower farms produces one million stems of roses every day, all destined for the international market.

The move comes after the closure of several companies in the country including flower farms due to harsh economic times. 

According to the business park General Manager James Waweru, they are currently employing over 4,500 workers with the number expected to rise after the expansion.

“We have embarked on the process of expanding as we have ample land and we expect our rose production and vegetable seedlings to double meaning for revenue for the government and job opportunities,” he said.
