Join a free webinar on Wednesday 6 April that will be looking at the trading opportunities with Türkiye’s ornamental horticulture. FloraCulture International (FCI) and Ornamental Plants and Products Exporters Union invite ornamentals growers, buyers and traders from around the world to take a look at Turkish plants and products.
For buyers from Europe looking to expand their portfolio of products, this webinar will help inform decisions. According to the Turkish Ornamental Plants and Products Exporters Association, Türkiye’s flower industry is in great health, rapidly growing its production, exports and horticulturally skilled workers.
There will be four presenters for the ‘What to import and how to procure flowers and plants from Türkiye’ webinar who are all ready to illuminate in abundance the opportunities and challenges in this country’s market. Ornamental Plants & Products Exporters association was founded in 1999 to support its 500+ Turkish ornamental plants sector members.
The Turkish flower industry utilizes 5,248 hectares in production and exports indoor and outdoor plants, cuttings, cut flowers, wreaths, and mosses to 79 countries worldwide, including the Netherlands, Uzbekistan, the UK, Germany, and Azerbaijan. The climate and its geographical proximity to its export markets create the ideal conditions for ornamental plant production and cut flowers.
Add to the equation its modern greenhouses and abundance of skilled labor, and it’s easy to see why Türkiye has such a buoyant horticultural industry and is still growing.
Around 55 per cent of this area is used to raise nursery stock outdoor and indoor plants, with the rest made up of 35 per cent of cut flowers and ten young plants, seeds and flower bulbs.
The market has diversified. Before growers sold their plants to local municipalities, the public authorities have less money to spend, and efforts are better employed in developing the huge potential in export markets.
It is no secret that the Coronovirus pandemic caused a significant surge in demand for houseplants, garden plants, and all things green which is fuelling the exports of Turkish grown ornamentals.
