Increasingly more Indian rose growers to export their flowers
The farm of Elegant Flora.
"We are looking for possibilities to export to Australia", he says. Last year, Elegant flora extended their 6 acre sized farm in Maharashtra with another 6 acres. On a daily basis, they grow 5000 red, yellow and white roses in their polytunnels. "Over the last few years our roses were mainly distributed within India and exported only on special occasions, like Christmas and Valentines day. However, due to the expansion and the governmental subsidies, we are able to discover more opportunities to export our products", explains Agarwal.
Why Australia? "For many flower growers, Europe is their main market. However when looking at the cost of transporting our flowers from India to Europe, Australia is for us, financially speaking, a better option. Besides that, it is very hard to compete with the roses from East Africa that are already on the European market.
"In order to reach the Australian market we are planning to attend exhibitions in the future", concludes Agarwal.
