Flower Centre is a family business that was founded in 1965. Our deep industry knowledge and relationships ensure we supply the best quality flowers, at the right time and prices to the wholesale and retail markets. Our flowers come from both farms across Southern and East Africa and from the biggest daily flower auction in Africa. We have not missed an auction in 55 years.

Our offices are located at Multiflora and we work closely with partners across Southern Africa. ​
