Zedgee's packing house's uniqueness is primarily in the quality of its service and its ability to reduce the marketing costs significantly for all the Kenyan growers. Its activity focuses on service provision and not profit. The packing house is equipped with cooling chambers that enable the maintenance of the quality of the flower throughout its marketing route.
Zedgee holds an additional important role in providing services to the growers through its various departments.
We provide outgrower support to the farmers in terms of agronomist services. This technical support helps in ensuring that the quality of the flowers produced is maintained and also delivered in good timing to provide the farmer with the best returns on investment.
The marketing department accompanies the export process beginning with the flower transport from the growing farm up to the sale of the flower. The department provides consultation regarding the cost effectiveness of growing various varieties and their suitability to the various marketing channels: flower exchanges and deals. This department provides the link between the grower and the flower exchanges and the purchasers.
The operations department is responsible for collecting the flowers from the growing farms, arranging them in boxes in the packing house, storing them in the cooling chambers and loading them on the trucks on their way to the airports.
The bookkeeping and treasurer's office department is responsible for the contract signing with the grower, operating capital credit distribution, handling financial transactions in Kenyan banks and those abroad for the purposes of receiving the intake from the flower exchanges and payments to the grower.
