Kenya Flower Council Triumphs at Record-Breaking 11th IFTEX, Showcasing Resilience and Innovation in Global Floriculture.

Many congratulations to the Kenya Flower Council under the leadership of Chairman Chris Kulei and CEO Clement Tulezi on the opening of the 11th IFTEX flower exhibition in Nairobi this morning.

The International Flower Trade Expo (IFTEX) is a premier event in the floriculture industry, showcasing the very best in flower production, innovation, and trade. This year’s event is particularly noteworthy, with a record-breaking attendance of representatives from 75 countries, utilizing over 7000 square meters of exhibition space. This makes it the largest edition of the exhibition to date, underscoring Kenya’s pivotal role in the global flower market.

Kenya’s floriculture sector has faced several challenges in recent years, including logistical hurdles, changing climate conditions, and the impact of global economic fluctuations. Despite these obstacles, the sector continues to demonstrate resilience and growth. The ongoing expansion into new export markets is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those involved in the industry, from small-scale farmers to large-scale producers.

The IFTEX provides a crucial platform for stakeholders to network, exchange ideas, and forge new business relationships. It also offers an opportunity to highlight the sustainable practices that are increasingly being adopted within the industry, ensuring that Kenya not only remains a top exporter of flowers but also sets standards for environmentally responsible production.

Chairman Chris Kulei and CEO Clement Tulezi have been instrumental in driving the council’s vision and strategic initiatives. Under their leadership, the Kenya Flower Council has not only maintained but also enhanced its reputation on the global stage. Their efforts have been pivotal in navigating the sector through turbulent times and positioning it for future growth.

Bimal Kantaria, Chair of the Agriculture Sector Network and Managing Director of Elgon Kenya, expressed his admiration and support for the Kenya Flower Council’s achievements. “Well done to KFC and all their members for presenting Kenya so well on the global stage,” he remarked. The exhibition stands as a testament to the collective effort and commitment of the entire floriculture community in Kenya.

The 11th IFTEX is set to be a landmark event, bringing together industry leaders, buyers, and exhibitors in a celebration of floral excellence. It marks a significant milestone in Kenya’s journey as a leading flower exporter, showcasing the country’s ability to adapt, innovate, and thrive in the competitive global market.
