BloomQuest views its responsibility to the worker in Africa as one of its most important focuses. There are many areas where BloomQuest has provided its workers a better standard of living and their families the opportunity of free education, housing and medical care.
This goes hand in hand with BloomQuest and its key 5 rose farms in Kenya all receiving Fair-trade accreditation from the FLO (Fair-trade Labelling Organisation). Fair-trade guarantees a better deal to producers in the developing world. For further information on Fair-trade please visit the website www.fairtrade.net
