At the 5th edition of IFTEX, the International Floriculture Trade Expo in Nairobi Kenya, FSI members based in East Africa met and discussed the new round of projects with those present at the expo.
The expo, which took place from 8 to 10 June, was attended by a growing number of international visitors and exhibitors, many highlighting their efforts and results on sustainable business
Prior to the Fair, FSI was invited to highlight and discuss the developments on measuring responsible volumes at the Union Fleurs General Assembly. The board members added some valuable points to the discussion and are looking forward to the outcomes and learnings of this project.
FSI was also invited to speak at the Industry Seminar organised by Union Fleurs and Kenya Flower Council on Tuesday 7 June. The seminar, with the title ‘Challenges ahead in the global flower supply-chain’, was another good occasion to present FSI’s latest activities and emphasize the importance of transparency and working on key topics in a multi-stakeholder environment.
