Last Thursday the last flowers were sent to India by plane. The order amounts to around 50,000 euros, and according to Adrichem, it's enough flowers to fill two semi-trucks with. "Normally the week of 'Sinterklaas' (a traditional holiday in Dutch-speaking Europe) is not such a good week for us, but this order made up for that."
