Dutch nursery featured on BBC broadcast

"The UK is an import market for us, we lose about 30 percent of our market when we stop"

BBC visited several Dutch companies that are doing business with the UK to find out how Brexit has changed trading between the EU and the UK. One of the companies they visited is Colours of Nature. Every year, they ship millions of flowers to the UK. Extra paperwork after Brexit has meant extra costs, and more checks are coming, but it is not stopping them here. 

"The UK is an import market for us and when we stop exporting to the UK we lose about 30 percent of our market. We cannot sell those flowers to other places and we don't want to, because these people are flower-minded", Colours of Nature's Erik van der Spek says.
