Production Process

Growing & Harvesting

Our highly skilled and professional team have established a modern and efficient crop management system and high quality controls within both the field and the packhouse.

We harvest two times a day to ensure the optimum quality and cut stage of each stem. Roses are sized directly in the field and put in disinfected water before they are transported into the packhouse.

We harvest our roses at cut stage 2 or 3 depending on client requirements.

Packing & Grading

Flowers are put into the cold room for minimum of 5 hours immediately after arrival to the packhouse after they are inspected by our intake quality controller. Each single stem is sized, defoliated, graded and checked in terms of different parameters i.e. opening stage, shape, colour, size, damages if any, strength, straightness of the stem and bud size.

Bunches are packed in line with our customer specifications.

Boxing & Shipping

After grading and bunching the roses are packed into recycled Zim boxes (100cm x 32cm x 21cm ) and stored in outtake coldroom where they are kept until the departure to the airport.

After a final quality check, boxes are placed on the refrigerated trucks and taken to Addis Ababa airport.
