The Kariki Group was founded by Richard Fernandes in 2002 in Nanyuki, with his brother Andrew joining him a few years later. Subsequent expansions have led to the development of 3 additional farms in the Thika, Naivasha and Molo areas, with 130 ha of cut flowers under production. Our focus is growing niche summer flower crops with Eryngium Questar and Hypericum Flair series initially being the main focus. More recently, Roses, Hydrangea, Phlox, Astrantia, Ornithogalum and other summer flowers have been added.
The Kariki Group comprises 4 flower farms located at different altitudes, offering a climatic spread allowing a wide range of flowers to be grown. The group focuses on supplying quality products to a global customer base spanning Europe, Australia, Japan, USA, Canada among other parts of the globe. Kariki Group employs over 1,600 staff who we refer to as value adders. We embrace the Kaizen Culture which puts belief in people, hence our slogan: We Grow People, Our People Grow Flowers.
We meet high-quality standards in everything we do. Our emphasis is on quality before volume and this is achieved by our highly-skilled and committed personnel.
We are proud to be members of the Kenya Flower Council and currently hold the following certifications: KFC Silver and Global Gap.
Our farms are located on the Equator, which boasts ideal climate and year-round production. Altitude spread ensures a wide product portfolio.
