Ethiopian farm nominated for Dutch Flower Award

The trade companies of the Dutch Flower Group (DFG) have nominated ten growers for the Dutch Flower Award 2009, amongst them an Ethiopian lily and a Costa Rican foliage farm. The award will be handed out on October 15th during the FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer (formerly known as the Aalsmeer Market).

A total of ten growers have been nominated in the categories of flowers, plants and imports. DFG introduced the award eight years ago to put suppliers with exceptional qualities in the spotlight.

This year, the Ethiopian lily farm Langano Lily is one of the nominated companies. Langano Lily is member of the Klaver Lily Group. The Klaver Lily Group decided to start this new business establishment in Ethiopia because of the rising gas prices and the high labour- and investment costs in the Netherlands. Due to the good investment climate in Ethiopia, it is better able to control rising costs.
