From humble florist to global player

Ehiya, a millionaire recognized as the second largest flower producer and exporter in the world, was in the Klang Valley for a working visit.

With his two brothers, he runs a multi-million-dollar enterprise supplying flowers to the world. The Black Tulip Group (BTG) is not only a supplier of flowers but also grows its own with farms in Ethiopia, India, Kenya, and Malaysia.

“We are in the process of expanding our farms in Cameron Highlands,” he revealed. BTG owns around 3,200ha of farmland across these countries with a workforce of 10,000 employees, and it exports flowers like roses, orchids, gypsophila, and lilies. Its annual turnover is about US$250mil (RM1.1bil).

Its main markets include the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Singapore, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, Australia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait.
