Dutch flower and plant exports shrink by 4%

Dutch flower and plant exports will close the first half of 2023 with an export value of EUR 4 billion, a 4% contraction. This was announced by the Vereniging van Groothandelaren in Bloemkwekerijprodukten (Association of Wholesalers in Horticultural Products or VGB) based on Floridata export statistics. Exports of flowers shrank 4% to 2.4 billion euros, and for plants, exports shrank 2% to 1.6 billion euros.

"The last two months show small bright spots in the figures," states Matthijs Mesken, director of the VGB. "In particular, our main export countries, the UK and France, are showing contraction. Traders are worried about even higher costs for personnel, inspections, and transport. We hope traders are able to maintain or increase their margins. A reasonable price for our beautiful flowers and plants is needed to meet costs."
