On March 16th, 2023, a delegation of eight US Congressional Representatives, while in Ecuador for bilateral trade discussions, visited one of Rosaprima's farms located in the Guachalá rose growing region of Ecuador. The representatives who visited the farm were Jason Smith (R-Missouri), Terri Sewell (D-Alabama), Jimmy Panetta (D-California), Beth Van Duyne (R-Texas), Carol Miller (R-West Virginia), Michelle Fischbach (R-Minnesota), Mike Carey (R-Ohio), and Kelly Armstrong (R-North Dakota).
During the visit, the representatives walked the farm and witnessed firsthand the growing process of Rosaprima's Iconic roses while engaging with company employees. The visit provided the representatives with valuable insights into the floral industry's essential role in the country's economy and surrounding rural communities.
The visit to Rosaprima's farm was an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable farming practices, fair labor practices, and environmental stewardship in the floral industry. Such visits are vital in providing lawmakers with a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by different industries, including the floral industry.
