The Kenya Flower Council (KFC) and Fresh Produce Exporters Association of Kenya (FPEAK) are exploring ways and means of collaborating through the revival of Kenya Horticultural Council (KHC). To this end, joint Board of Directors discussions are ongoing. The priority areas of corporation include;
– Lobbying to ensure signing of EPA in time to beat the October 2016 ratification deadline. Given the protracted process of the ratification process, we are pushing to have the EPA is signed by July 2015
– Address wastage of produce by reducing rejections
– Address threat of loss of market as a result of interceptions.
We will keep you updated on the developments.
