Wholesale Flowers On A Special Day!!!

According to Asocolflores, Colombia continues to lead the wholesale flower market on one of the most important dates of the year - Mother's Day.

In the United States in 2018 accounted for 74% of total imports of flower products for delivery to this holiday with a total of about 606 million stalks. Wholesale supplies of flowers on this date were also sent to other markets, such as the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada,


Spain, Russia and Australia. We also export other types of flowers, such as chrysanthemums, pompons, hydrangeas, sunflowers and greens, which are produced in Antioquia and are a source of income for the florists of this region. This sector of floriculture enables many mothers of Colombia to become the head of the family, because women constitute 40% of workers in this industry. According to Asocolflores, this work provides an opportunity for work and study.


 As for the logistic part, this season will triple the work of the cargo terminals at El Dorado Airport in Bogota and José Maria Cordova in Rionegro. One of the most important airlines in the country (Avianca-Cargo) transported more than 12,000 tons of flowers from Colombia and Ecuador on this date, during the season 211 cargo flights were performed, the capacity of which varies from 40 tons to 80 tons per flight. She carried out 8 charter flights on the routes Bogota - Miami, Medellin - Miami, Bogota - San Juan and Bogota - Los Angeles.
