FPEAK, formed in 1975, is a trade association representing growers, exporters and service providers in the horticulture industry. Members of the association are involved in growing and/or exporting fresh Cutflowers, fruits and vegetables.

 

FPEAK supports growers and exporters by providing technical and marketing information and training, act as an information centre, and run active lobbying and as advocacy programs to enhance the sector’s competitiveness.

 

KFC is a voluntary association of independent growers and exporters of cut-flowers and ornamentals , formed in 1996, with the aim of fostering responsible and safe production of cut flowers in Kenya with due consideration of workers welfare and protection of the environment.

 

Against this background the KFC has become a common platform for industry representation, advocacy, promotion and compliance to pertinent local and international standards, deemed necessary to secure markets.

 

 KFC administers compliance through an internationally accredited KFC Certification Scheme on good agricultural practice,            sustainability, social accountability, hygiene health and safety, capacity building, environmental protection and conservation,          adherence to which is the backbone of all KFC activities.
