General events, visits and highlights A successful introduction of The Mavuno Group was launched in June 2009 with producers from all over Kenya being invited to a series of Regional Grower’s meetings in Nakuru, Naivasha, Thika and Athi. Mavuno as a vertically integrated seed to sale brand was explained to the producers. Carrying on with trend of consistent efforts at improvement, The Tele Flower Auction of The Mavuno Group integrated its activities with Flora Holland on 14th January 2010. This means that current TFA suppliers will broaden their sales network and strengthen their trade opportunities by connecting to the virtual clock systems of Flora Holland. This represents a larger market potential for their current growers and buyers which means increased efficiency in the logistical chain. The Mavuno Group is focused on creating growth and results through partnerships and cooperation, developing synergies and allowing talent to flourish in the global fresh flower industry. With regard to Fairtrade, several Fairtrade consultative meetings have been held in 2009 bringing together both hired labour and small scale producers in flowers, tea and coffee to address various challenges being faced by producers and culminating in a very eventful producer meeting with the Standards Committee and the Standards Unit of FLO. The hitherto dormant Kenya Fairtrade Network was introduced to the producers and discussions on how KFN can be the voice of the producers was discussed with promising conclusions. Paul Rice, President and CEO of TransFair USA visited Kenya in early July and met with the Mavuno ethical trade representative. He was impressed by all the work that is being carried out by Mavuno producers in respect to Fairtrade and the evident commitment towards the same. TransFair USA is a member of the Fairtrade Labeling Organizations and is the only certifier of Fair Trade products in the US. -- The US market for Fair Trade products has surpassed $730 million and grows more than 50% each year. -- 33% annual growth in consumer awareness since 2003 -- High purchase conversion: 56% of those aware of Fair Trade also purchase it, compared to 30% for organic. To round up on Fairtrade news early 2010, Zachary Kiarie who has been the Liaison Officer supporting flower producers in Kenya and Tanzania for the past two years has recently been appointed as the new FLO PSR Regional Coordinator for East Africa. Still on social issues, Mavuno Group suppliers played an active role in several conferences beginning with the GHOWERN conference held in September 2009. GHOWERN, which stands for Global Horticultural Worker’s and Environmental Rights Network seeking to bring together a range of stakeholders including workers, trade unions and NGO representatives and employers. It provided an opportunity for networking and exchanging of experiences and ideas with the aim of improving the working conditions and environmental standards of the global horticultural sector. The first ever Sainsbury’s Africa conferences in February 2010 presented a valuable opportunity for producers to find out more about Sainsbury’s and for the supermarket to address crucial issues facing producers. Sainsbury’s is a major supermarket in the UK and sustainably sourcing high quality products from Africa. These events were supported by the International Agri-Technology Centre (IATC) and Comic Relief. Issues of sustainability and Fairtrade were discussed at length, the way forward to the benefit of all and how to sustain the momentum on the progress made so far. During the event, Oserian was one of the lucky farms to be awarded African Producer Awards for 2010.

From the markets; The Waitrose Foundation was launched in Kenya in June with a visit by Mary Visozo the Director of Food Technology at Waitrose Supermarkets. The Waitrose foundation is an independent charitable organization established three years ago, which allows Waitrose to develop and support schemes that contribute to the communities where their suppliers live and work. The Waitrose Foundation works through an agreement with importers, export agents and growers, which enables Waitrose and their suppliers to pass back a proportion of the profit for every product bearing the Waitrose Foundation logo. With regard to mainland Europe, Oserian and Sister Company Bloom in conjunction with Albert Heijn come together to give back to the community in a very unique way. Various communities were contracted to produce bracelets which were to adorn these bunches. In this way, Oserian created employment for members of the community and gave these communities an ownership for the work carried out. Moreover the customers purchased Fairtrade bunches of flowers with added value and an African touch. These bunches also brought in Fairtrade premiums that contribute to various Fairtrade projects for the benefit of the entire Oserian community. The Kenyan Ambassador, Ruthie Rono was present during the launch of these unique bunches. This has set a precedent for other such projects in the future where the entire supply chain from customer to communities are in contact and are mutually benefiting each other in hither to unexplored means and ways. In the interests of objectivity, World Flowers in the UK had an ETI verification visit whose objective was to validate the WF ETI report. The ETI director and other participants drawn from an NGO, Union representative and the company producing ETI reports acknowledged World Flowers’ good practices and encouraged better performance going forward despite commercial pressures. The popularity of the bracelet projects which begun in 2009 have grown exponentially in popularity with several supermarkets running promotions. The idea behind the bracelets, is that various communities are contracted to produce bracelets which are to adorn Fairtrade bunches. In this way, Oserian creates employment for members of the community and gives these communities an ownership for the work carried out. Moreover the customers purchased Fairtrade bunches of flowers with added value and an African touch.

The Best Charity Stand trophy

Interflora launched a new scented rose collection at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May 2010. The launch further opened the market to this niche product that has a lot of potential for growth. An increasing awareness and appreciation of the products on offer has been recognized. All of the roses in the bouquets are Fairtrade certified in addition to being colourful, sweet smelling and distinctive. Karen Barnes, Head of Floral Gifting at Interflora, explained that a research visit to a Fairtrade farm in Kenya in the autumn of 2009 where she was presented with some of the varieties was the inspiration for this line; citing an amazing scent, intoxicating fragrance that reminded her of old-fashioned English country garden roses and was sure that the customers would love them. Oserian participated in the Nakuru ASK Show, the largest held in the Rift Valley Province in Kenya. The show is held annually, exhibiting the agricultural sector and business supporting agriculture. Oserian had display stands in tissue culture, production, IPM (Integrated Pest Management) & pest control, geothermal energy, packhouse, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and environment & wildlife; winning two awards in the trade category: -- Best Medium Commercial Trade Stand -- Best Non Statutory Agribusiness Trade Stand Oserian also took part in the Naivasha Horticultural Fair (NHF) on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th September 2010 an annual event held at the Naivasha Sports Club. NHF is 100% charitable and is the second largest exhibitor’s event of its kind in Africa after Hortec, bringing together horticultural producers and key buyers and suppliers in the industry. NHF provides an opportunity to learn more about the industry, new products and techniques as well as a platform for professionals to network. Above all, NHF brings together players in the industry with an aim to give back to the community through donations to schools, children’s homes as well as HIV/AIDS projects and community health care. At the Oserian stand, Oserian show cased tissue culture and its relevance to the industry, the huge environmental strides made so far, geothermal power generation, packhouse process and products as well as CSR projects intended for the community at large. Oserian was the only organization that demonstrated CSR initiatives during the fair at the stand and as a result won a trophy for Best Charity Stand 2010.
