International Flower Industry Focuses On Sustainability for Growth Conference

The Kenya Flower Council (KFC) in collaboration with the Union Fleurs (UF) and the Flower Sustainability Initiative (FSI) has organized an International Flower Industry Conference scheduled to take place on June 6, 2013 at the Visa Oshwal Centre, Westlands – Nairobi, Kenya.

The Conference will focus on sustainability as a means of enhancing productivity, at a time when growth in international demand for flowers has been projected at 5% against exacting consumer requirements for product quality and demonstration of due diligence to environmental stewardship and social accountability.

The industry will share some of the ongoing initiatives, at the supply side as well as the market end of the value chain, to address some of the challenges and opportunities arising from an expanding and increasingly discerning international trade.  The event will take place as the global flower trade players gather during the International Flower Trade Exhibition (IFTEX) in Nairobi from June 5-7, 2013.

To confirm your participation kindly write to kfc@wananchi.com or call 020 2679268 or 0733 639 523.
