Clement Tulezi of Kenya Flower Council (KFC), telling us how they are working hard to comply with Australia's revised import conditions. Mobile fumigation, enhanced farm procedures and import licenses enable Kenyan growers to keep exporting to this country. Regarding flowers, Kenya is their major supplier. For Kenya, the Australian market accounts for around 5 to 6 percent of the total exports. It is clearly not their major market (Europe is), but the Kenyans do not want to lose it. More on this later in FloralDaily.
