Trade mission Floriculture Colombia - Ecuador

16-21 September 2018

Ideavelop, by way of their trade name Jungle Talks and Holland House Colombia have joined their forces in strengthening cooperation between the Netherlands and Colombia in the field of floriculture. Colombia is the second largest flower exporter in the world and the changing circumstances in the country (rising costs because of economic growth) offer opportunities to Dutch horticultural entrepreneurs. Ecuador is host to two international flower trade fairs this year, the Expoflor and Agriflor, both taking place from 19-21 September.

This trade mission focuses on among others suppliers of knowledge and technology, but also growers/producers. The goal is to gather more knowledge about the local circumstances, but also to explore new business models and opportunities for cooperation.

Draft program

During this trade mission, participants will visit companies around Bogota and Quito. In Bogota, besides production practices, attention will be also be paid to post-harvest techniques, logistics and marketing and the focus will lie on rose, alstroemeria and gerbera. In Ecuador, local trends and developments will be seen from up-close at production companies and participants will visit both international flower fairs.
