Project abstractImmediate Communications Ltd, Kenyan company specialised in exporting of flowers to Europe and training of Kenyan small scale farmers is searching for a Finnish partner for operating as a trade intermediary for flowers in the Nordic market.
Project descriptionThe company, established in 1999 is based in Nairobi, Kenya and currently employs 15 persons.
Immediate communication Ltd was incorporated in 1999 as a limited company in Kenya and was initially heavily involved in providing market information to small scale farmers. It was supported by donor funds from FOODNET and provided market information on FM radio. In 2016, the company started training small scale farmers on how to export summer flowers to Europe.
Immediate Communication LTD now promotes flower business through engaging small and medium farmers who are in groups of eight to twenty in numbers. The company has engaged more than 200 farmers in the past two years who have produced in different seasons. The company has established a 10 hectare demonstration farm in Junja, Central Kenya, about 40Km from Nairobi. The company has also bought about 20 hectares in Lamu for purposes of demonstrating summer flower growing potential and to serve as the base company production. The company is a member of the Fresh Produce Exporters Association of Kenya (FPEAK).
The customers so far have been the Netherlands. The company has exported summer flowers (Arabicum, Mobydick and Tuberose) to Flora Holland in collaboration with a local cooperative.
The company is currently looking for a partner to operate as a trade intermediary for the flowers in the Finnish and the Nordic market. The company would export the flowers directly to the intermediary who would then distribute in the Nordic market.
