Sales success for AU waxflower varieties in USA Market

Wafex USA is the sister US trading company of Helix Australia and also distributes Helix Australia waxflower varieties to cut flower wholesalers across North America.

WAFEX USA President Steve Dionne commented on the uptake of Helix Australia varieties in the US market.“At this time of year Australian waxflower faces very strong price competition from large volume waxflower plantings in Peru. The Peruvian plantations operate under a lower labour cost in addition to having access to cheaper freight rates…” said Steve.

Dionne continued, “Despite having to trade at a much higher price point, we have very strong demand for Helix varieties such as Moonlight Delight, Sarah's Delight and My sweet 16. There is clearly a strong market opening for premium niche varieties in the US market.”

Helix Australia currently has a range of trial cut flower/pot plant programmes in place for new varieties of waxflower to be grown in California. This will help create all year availability for discerning florists and home gardeners in America for the Helix Australia range.
