 NMC is spearheaded by KFC to support the Kenya Flower Industry in assuring sustained access to international markets, by developing and implementing a national system for industry-wide compliance with the existing regulatory framework for sustainable production. One man component of this project is development of an effective communication strategy with policy guidelines and implementation plans nationally and internationally.
