Karnataka set to add value to its flower power.
Feb 23, 2021

The Horticulture Department, in collaboration with the International Flower Auction Bangalore (IFAB), is setting up a flower processing centre to convert unsold flowers into various useful products.
 
M. Vishwanath, Joint Director of Horticulture and MD of IFAB, told The Hindu, 'This incubation centre will process flowers and convert them to value-added products such as natural dyes, floral papers, incense sticks, flower petal powder for cosmetic usage, floral embedded works, floral arts, and silica-stored flowers.'
 
He said such a facility was needed as flower farmers have been suffering huge losses whenever there is a glut or market disruption. Growers can learn the art of flower processing from the centre, he said.
