From farm to vase: Building sustainable cut flower supply chain
Flower Logistics Africa, a new initiative by Logistics Update Africa, promises to bring key stakeholders of Africa's flower power to discuss and learn the best practices of sustainable cut flower supply chain. It is one of the first conferences in Africa that put the focus on the evolving floral supply chain – from blooms to bouquets. The event is set for November 8-9 at the Radisson Blu Nairobi.
Global floriculture exports have nearly doubled in value over the past decade to reach $20.6bn per year, and Africa is enjoying a bigger piece of the pie than ever. It is estimated that Kenya account for about 38 percent of cut roses sold in the European Union making it the third largest exporter of cut flowers in the world. Ethiopia and Tanzania are other East African countries with significant share in global cut flower export.
Flower Logistics Africa will help attendees connect with the right set of resources to understand and implement solutions that will optimize their cut flower supply chain. The event is specially curated with topics that matter and speakers who influence.
The aim for the conference is to make it a platform where the industry puts their heads together to identify and solve the problems faced not only by the growers; but by the industry at large, where issues pertaining to policy and regulation, insurance, investment, the safety and the quality of the cargo are discussed extensively.
