    Our geographical location, the quality of our soils and the dedicated labor of our flower growers are behind Colombia’s the second place among flower exporters in the world.

    Our country has exported flowers for 40 years and is both the main provider for the United States and the first producer and exporter of carnations worldwide. 6,800 hectares are destined to export standards cultivation, 75% of which are located in the savannah of Bogotá, 15% in Antioquia and the remaining 5% in the mid-eastern part of the country.

    Colombia has a varied offer of export flowers amongst which we find roses, carnations, heliconias, astromelias, chrysanthemums and anthuriums. The foliage is also part of the catalog of the country’s exports. More then 98 countries import Colombian flowers. The principal markets are the Unites States (76%), Russia (5%), the United Kingdom (4,1%) and Japan (3,8%).

    Colombian floriculture generates more than 120.000 direct jobs, features 25% of female workforce and chips in with around 7% of the national agro GDP.
