Message from Chairman

EHPEA Chairman, Mr. Zelalem Messele

Welcome and thank you for giving us your time to visit our website. My name is Zelalem Messele, a Chairman of the Ethiopian Horticulture Producer Exporters Association (EHPEA). I am a farmer engaged in flower production to export for global market as most flower producers in Ethiopia are engaged in export market.

EHPEA was established in 2002 by five companion growers having the mission of contributing to the national economic development and side by side to address their mutual concerns in the horticulture production and marketing strive. At present, members of the association have grown in number and have become diversified.

Ethiopia is an ideal place for the production and export of flowers, vegetables, fruits and herbs. Such suitability of the country helped to bring exponential growth of export in the last seven years, making Ethiopia the fourth largest supplier of flower to the world market. Noticeable achievement has also been observed in the export of vegetables, fruits and herbs.

More than 122 billion metric cubic of ground and surface water; millions hectare of fertile land; trainable and disciplined working force; different agro-ecological zones; supportive investment policy frameworks; geographic proximity to Europe, middle east and other corners of the World; Ethiopian Airlines cargo and passenger service flying to many destinations in the World; very cheap electricity costs and political stability are among the few factors that make Ethiopia perfect location for the production and export of horticulture produce.

Many of the investors engaged in horticulture sector are benefitting a lot and also contributing for the economic development of the country. Produce and export from Ethiopia and buy high quality Ethiopian Horticulture Produce!
