Veiling Rhein-Maas:

Germany: General information on imported cut flowers

Until now, the quantities of imported cut flowers supplied to Veiling Rhein-Maas were rather stable, although they still lagged behind last year’s figures. However, turnover increased thanks to better prices. Decorative greens are still being sold in huge quantities at the clock at Veiling Rhein-Maas and it appears that widening the supply of these products is realistic. Fatsia leaves were sold in lower quantities for excellent prices and their sales stabilised once there was an amount of extra supply available from Costa Rica. Israel’s production of decorative greens dropped and we will need to look elsewhere to replace this supply. Due to the cold spring weather, local production has been delayed by three weeks. For this reason, imported products, such as lilies and helianthus, were recently sold for good prices. Demand increased for imported roses of higher quality and we are looking to expand the supply of this class of product for the new season.

IFTEX Nairobi
Representatives of Veiling Rhein-Maas visited the IFTEX horticulture fair in Nairobi, which was held at the beginning of June. Our goal was to expand the knowledge about Veiling Rhein-Maas as an attractive marketplace for the flower production from Africa. We had the opportunity to speak with a lot of existing suppliers and also to talk with new growers about introducing their new products and varieties at our auction. We can look back on a successful visit.

Please keep in mind that the summer holiday will start in week 27 and continue until week 32. In this period, we will remain in contact to adjust supply to demand.
