Kenya Flower Council (KFC)

The Kenya Flower Council is the national "enquiry point" for the sector and works closely with the Fresh Produce Exporters Association of Kenya (FPEAK) to liaise, on behalf of the members with government and development agencies, media, trade bodies, unions and other non governmental-organizations.

With the co-operation and support of associate members, KFC hosts Kenya Flower Days in Holland and other EU countries. The Council keeps abreast with the dynamic industry changes and is sensitive to the concerns of the affiliate members, clients alongside their customers in relation to fair trade and addresses any arising issues in the flower industry.

In this regard the Council cooperates with other stakeholders and organizations to create an enabling environment for the floriculture industry locally and abroad. For instance, they have a close working relation with Milieu Programma Sierteelt (MPS-Europe), and are in the process of seeking mutual recognition of the KFC code with other international flower labels. The Council is also a member of the international organization of flower organizations - Union Fleurs.

To promote Kenyan flowers, Kenya Flower Council organizes Kenya Flower Days in different countries. These are annual events that have so far been taking place in Holland, U.K. and Germany.

The current Kenya Flower Council membership represents more than 70% of the flowers exports. While Kenya was not exporting the products in 1970, it is currently the leading exporter to the European Union, contributing 31% of all flower sales, followed by Columbia with 17% and Israel 16%. The main European Union markets are Holland, Germany, Switzerland, France, and the United Kingdom.
