cut flowers

Take advantage of these benefits

  • Free mediation of contacts to thoroughly tried-and-tested producers of cut flowers
  • Flowers with large heads and intensive colours thanks to lits of sunshine
  • Reliable suppliers who are familiar with the requirements of the EU market

Outstanding variety and quality

Bring floral splendour from Africa and South America directly to Europe

Whether Ecuador and Colombia or Kenya and South Africa – these countries offer ideal climatic conditions for a wide range of flowers and a well-established infrastructure for growing and transporting cut flowers. 

Plenty of sunshine, adequate rainfall and moderate temperatures ensure optimum growth and the production of beautiful flowers with gorgeous blooms and strong stems in all four partner countries. Just what European customers want.

As an importer of cut flowers there is no need for you to personally embark on the time-consuming and cost-intensive search for suitable exporters. We have already done this job for you. We offer you direct access to small producers whose cut flowers you would normally only be able to buy via larger farms.

Trade directly with us. Take advantage of these benefits: 

  • Freshness: Direct import means a shorter supply chain. You receive the flowers direct from the farms, ensuring maximum freshness and longer shelf life at retail.  
  • Reduced costs: By cutting out the middleman, you get better prices, increasing your margins.
  • Transparency and sustainability: Direct trade promotes fair working conditions and environmentally sustainable farming methods. You know exactly where and under what conditions your flowers are produced.
  • Customised orders: Growers can respond flexibly to your individual wishes or requirements, such as packaging or delivery times, and develop new, exclusive products with you.

We have identified highly promising producers of cut flowers for you who are able to reliably meet the seasonal demand on the EU market. We prepare the suppliers thoroughly for the European market: giving attention not only to product quality, exportability and capacity, and compliance with international standards and certification, but also to their efficiency in terms of logistics and shipment.

Take advantage of all these benefits of tried-and-tested IPD companies and import cut flowers from South America that are sure to please.

»Since the beginning of our purchasing cooperative Flora Blumenimport, we have always tried to work with smaller growers in the Netherlands and abroad. Through the work of IPD, we have found some interesting smaller family businesses in Colombia and Ecuador that we did not know before. We are now buying more and more from them.«

Success Story

Successful move: cut flower farm benefits from the advantages of direct trade

Diversity blooms at the foot of Mount Kenya: Mount Kenya Sprouts impresses European buyers with a colourful selection of "summer flowers". With the support of IPD, the company has successfully repositioned itself and geared its sales to direct trade with European importers.
