Rosebud Limited, owned by property mogul Sudhir Ruparelia has been announced as one of Africa’s top flowers export company to Europe.
According to East African Business Week, when Zimbabwe crumbled and halted dominating the export of flowers to Europe, Rosebud which commands around 35% of Uganda’s rose-export market, popped out to fill the gaps.
“Rosebud has a high regard for quality which has reinforced the company as the major resort in the Ugandan market for buyers across the world,” says director Meera Ruparelia adding, “The greenhouses cover a total of 42 hectares producing and exporting over 9 million stems per month,”
Commanding 40% of the roses export, the company based in Entebbe, remains the country’s largest exporter of the product.
The greenhouses on the farm cover a total of 50 hectares producing and exporting over 12 million stems per month.
