Andean Greens and Foliage from Colombia at Proflora 2019

Trends say that floral arrangements are changing, and some of those changes have to do with the greater presence of foliage and greens in bouquets.

proflora.sept2019 Monochromatic and minimalist arrangements had gone out of fashion since consumers today are looking for bouquet and arrangements that have floral abundance and take risks in terms of colors. Therefore, foliage and greens are taking center stage in the world.

Regarding this trend, industry trendsetters should know that Colombia is positioned as a leader in the production and marketing of fresh ornamental foliage and greens. Data supports this assumption, last year exports reached 2,254 tons, with more than 20 species of Colombian foliage of excellent quality landing at 39 destinations worldwide. It is also important to mention that during 2018, Colombia exported foliage and greens worth US $12.4 million, which represents an increase of 14.1 percent in terms of value compared with 2017.

The perfect place to see first-hand what’s offered in this category is Proflora — the best flower trade show. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet growers of a wide range of products and see the farms that provide the best foliage.

During the show, held from Oct. 2-4, the exhibition will be opened for international buyers to visit farms that have previously been selected by the event organizers. Also, those who attend will be able to experience the new varieties that will set a trend in the coming years.

Without a doubt, it is an exceptional opportunity to create new relationships and contacts and get to know the diversity Colombia has to offer to the world.

Come and see why Proflora is the best cut flower, foliage and greens show. The main exhibitors will be Colombian and international flower producers, general suppliers, service companies and breeders — all key floriculture members who are responsible for developing the new varieties of flowers on the market.  Proflora is the entire flower industry under one roof!
