Flowers by Sea Conference


The Colombia vs Kenya Comparison

Seafreight replacing airfreight is just a matter of time, as can be read in the Floral Daily newsletter of Wednesday June 1st.

Shipping flowers by boat from Africa to Europe is not only possible, it is the future alternative for airfreight. By 2030, 50% of all perishable products will be transported by boat. How ever this can only happen in case the necessary logistical conditions will be met. So there is work to do. Deseases, delays are just a few factors that can cause big damages. But not only on the logistical side one can think of various challenges, also on the breeding and production side it will require developments that will be needed to make it all happen.

Bringing the two countries together to the table that already export their perishable flower products by boat, will not only be a very interesting opportunity to be part of, but also extremely learnful. For this reason several leading players in the Colombian and Kenyan flower industries will be invited and take part in a panel that will interact through Q&A with the audience present in the auditorium.
