The Ethiopian Horticulture Producers and Exporters Association (EHPEA) was established in 2002 to represent the interests of its members and promote the expansion of the emerging horticulture sector in Ethiopia. In 2014, the association listed around 100 registered businesses that are engaged in the production and export of horticultural products including flowers, fruits, herbs and vegetables.

Export figures have been increasing year by year with flowers constituting the biggest share in revenue. The country’s horticulture products are exported to over 100 destinations worldwide. Besides its advocacy role in improving the business climate for its members, EHPEA also provides trainings, organises networking events and offers business support covering the complete value chain including safety and quality issues.
