In view of these difficulties, we decided to come together and organize to find a solution to these problems.

We have created this company because we think it’s necessary for our country to be well known worldwide for our flowers. We also think is important for the producers to have a company in charge of contacting the international markets, so they have a much wide market, instead of only being known in Ecuador.
We offer to our customers a quality company dedicated to get for them the best flowers in the world.
There is no association in Ecuador that cares for the exportation of flowers. Therefore, we have join forces to create this company in order to export the beautiful flowers produce in Ecuador, and later on conform an association that cares only for flowers, its producers, and its exportation.
