Mexican enthusiasm for Orchids and Anthurium

Each year at the beginning of November one of the largest agricultural fairs in Mexico takes place, called the Expo Agro Alimentaria. This trade fair is organized in the city of Irapuato, in the state of Guanajuato.

At this spacious trade fair you will find everything in the field of agriculture and horticulture. It has more than 1,000 stands with a demonstration area of hundreds of agricultural machines and a showroom of almost 4 hectares for the different indoor and outdoor cultivations.

In the middle of this trade show, Anthura’s stand was set up in the Holland pavilion. Their slogan ‘Unlimited in Varieties offering unlimited possibilities’ took up the back wall of the stand and was highlighted with a wide variety of colours of the exhibited varieties.

This year, one of our customers also took part in the fair with his own stand, with the aim of selling finished products at the show. Before the show started there were some nerves in play, because it was their first time at the fair, but the plants sold like hot cakes.


Expo Agro Alimentaria in Mexico

Mexican horticulture
Developments have occurred rapidly in the Mexican horticultural sector over the past few years. More and more growers are willing to make the necessary investments to be able to produce more efficiently and to improve the quality of the end product.

Consumers are willing to pay extra for a Phalaenopsis of high quality. Production of Phalaenopsis has grown over the past year and it is expected that this growth will continue in the coming years.
