These days we have many customers, large and small, new and old, in the UK and Ireland and within the European wholesale markets, the floristry markets, bouquet re-packers for supermarkets and Internet postal gift companies.
Our office is located just a few minutes from busy Heathrow Airport in West London.
Colombia is our main country of supply for the freshest and best flowers in the world. Already well established as the second largest fresh flower exporting country in the world Colombia is known for the superb quality of its flowers, big heads, strong stems and longer vase life. The growing area located on the Sabana de Bogotá is situated 2600 meters above sea level and with its close proximity to the equator, its steady annual temperature and solar light means that we can offer the same consistently good quality product the whole year round (for All Seasons in fact!).
We also import flowers, foliage and other fresh produce from other parts of the world when in season such as Ecuador, Israel, Turkey, Italy and Kenya as well as Orchids from Thailand.
We have an established procurement office in Colombia’s capital city Bogotá as well as in the Antioquia region close to Medellin with full time personnel designated to regular visits to all our growers, checking freight controls at the airports and strictly controlling quality in all areas of the supply and cool chain. This has proved to be very effective in bringing our growers much closer to our customers business needs. We have constant communication via a linked computer network between our offices and are therefore able to react very quickly to short notice requests and market changes. Having our own personnel on the ground at source ensures that we have daily personal contact with our suppliers and freight forwarders.
