How Floral Associations Benefit The Flower Industry

  1. 1. How Floral Associations Benefit The Flower Industry Everybody loves flowers and there is no occasion for which these are not considered suitable! The flower industry is one which has universal appeal all over the world and it thrives in every region and all kinds of societies. There are also floral associations all over the world and these are usually region specific to assist the industry in that particular region. There are many benefits that the members of the floral industry can accrue from such entities. These entities or bodies are formed for the benefit of the industry as a whole and they function to bring benefits to every member of the flower industry, be it producers or buyers or retailers or suppliers. With the help of such beneficial entities, all aspects of the industry can thrive and grow towards a better future. One of the huge advantages of having a common beneficiary body for the industry in a specific region is that it has an overall regulatory effect on the way the floral industry functions in that specific region. Being a part of a common association ensures that all the members are bound under certain ethical rules to be followed. This also ensures that only

When all the practices followed with regard to trade are undertaken in a fair manner, naturally the functioning of the floral industry as a whole is smooth and everyone is benefitted! These beneficiary bodies not only function in a regulatory capacity within the industry but they also function as a mediator between the government and local authorities and the members of the floral industry. These bodies are the voice of the industry and they represent the interests of the members to the authorities. These beneficial bodies also work towards the betterment of the industry by organizing conferences and trade fairs where newer and more scientific methods of production are brought to the attention of the members. Ensuring that their members are up to date with the latest technology and practices used in floristry is one of the most important functions of these regulatory bodies. It is not only the flower growers or producers who are benefitted by this knowledge but also all the other members of the association like the wholesalers and retailers because newer and better methods of transport and storage of flowers and so on are also included.
