All our locations in Kenya are KFC Silver Label Certificated by the Kenya Flower Council. This certificate is based on environmental and socio-economic principles which ensure certified producers foster sustainable, responsible and safe production of cut flowers and ornamentals. The Standard covers good agricultural practice, human resource management and workers welfare, good governance, health & safety, environmental protection & conservation, and post-harvest management.
Marginpar Ethiopia has MPS-A and MPS-SQ certification. The MPS-ABC certificate is a unique world standard and works as a benchmark in demonstrating to what extent our operations are environmentally friendly. There are three different levels, MPS-A, MPS-B and MPS-C. MPS-A certified is the most environmentally friendly. MPS-SQ stands for ‘Socially Qualified’ and focusses on Health & Safety, and good working conditions. We strive to fulfill the certification process for Marginpar Ethiopian farms with MPS-B en MPS-C by the end of 2020.
Our partner farms in Zimbabwe and Tanzania are in the MPS certification process and are following soon.
