A cold chain is only as strong as all the components it is made up of. The perfect cold chain starts from the delivery of the roses to the grading hall to delivery to the airport. Mount Meru Flowers has completed this cold chain by investing in a fleet of Mercedes Trucks. The trucks are perfectly insulated and have a monitored temperature of around 5C. Our regular shipments of flowers are accompanied by data loggers recording the temperature and humidity every 10 minutes until unpacking at their final destination. At every stage of the cold chain temperature information is maintained and logged thus contributing to the professionalism in which the "cold chain" has been handled.

3 Airports which are available for use by Mount Meru Flowers are as follows:
  • Kilimanjaro International Airport, Tanzania, "HOME" situated ONLY 45 minutes from the farm, which offers daily KLM and other flights, which depart at night arriving the next morning at Amsterdam, right to the doors of Flora Holland, the world's biggest flower auction of imported roses.
  • Dar-es-Salaam International Airport, Tanzania, has direct connections to Amsterdam, Dubai and other worldwide destinations.
  • Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi, Kenya, the biggest airport in the East African region, also offers many flights to worldwide destinations within the flower industry.
The access of the three International Airports in proximity to Mount Meru Flowers gives the company the flexibility required to be able to deliver fresh cut flowers to the auction or directly to the buyer at any time.

Mount Meru Flowers use internationally experienced forwarders like Kuehne Nagel, Flowerwings, Hellman or Total Touch to transport their flowers, thus ensuring that the flowers arrive FRESH at their destination.
