The company’s sales are derived from a diversified revenue stream including importers, wholesalers, hospitality businesses, supermarkets and local flower shops. The business has a varied client base including buyers from Europe, the Caribbean and South Florida. Products are typically shipped by the box in bulk for importers/wholesalers and provided as bunches or bouquets for display at shops and grocery stores. The Company is one of the largest exporters to the Caribbean Island as its selection of flowers provided by its suppliers in Columbia and Ecuador allows the business to offer selections that are not able to be sourced locally.
