Valentine Growers has been granted the 2020 International Fairtrade Award. The Kenyan flower firm was awarded for the first time in the Hired Labor Organization (HLO) category.
The company was honored as it attempted to better its employees lives and made a nice ecosystem plan. The fair trade premium has helped the company’s workforce, 380 people, and their families.
Dennis Gakuru, the firm’s Fairtrade coordinator and IT administrator, said we plan to educate our workers as our great investment. He said the award inspires other firms too.
The Kenyan flower firm was recognized in a ceremony in Berlin, Germany.
