Colombian flower exports up 8% in first semester
Of the 90 countries to which Colombia exports flowers, the country’s commercial activities improved the most in the United States and Japan. Colombian flower sales in the former grew by 9% in value, while a 19% increase in volume was recorded in the latter.
The total exports were worth US $ 785 million, which was mainly due to the increase in the number of tonnes exported to the United States (99,000) and Japan (4,323), with a growth of 2,000 and 600 tonnes, respectively.
When looking at individual types of flowers, carnations retain their leadership. In the United States, they recorded 7.4% growth in value and 3.3% in volume compared to the same period of the previous year. However, chrysanthemums were the species that grew the most during this period, with more than a 100% increase in terms of both value and volume.
How did it go by regions?
The most exported species in Cundinamarca is the rose, with a 29% share, while chrysanthemums are the most exported from Antioquia, with a 33.8% share.
It should be noted that, in Cundinamarca, flower exports accounted for 80.5% of the total.
