Sher Ethiopia PLC is the largest rose grower in the world

At Sher Ethiopia we grow roses. Approximately 12,500 employees grow, harvest, grade and pack roses at three farms. Between 2.5 and 4 million roses are processed and transported to the airport in Addis Ababa every day, from where they are flown to Europe for further distribution. This makes us the largest rose grower in the world and the biggest supplier of roses in Europe.
