Colombia: Sales of Colombian Flowers Fall During Covid-19 Crisis

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Due to the measures taken by many countries to control the Covid-19 spread, sales of Colombian flowers are down 40 percent. The decline is less than the 80 percent decrease that the Colombian flower industry feared at the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, but the financial losses are still huge for one of Colombia's biggest exports. Currently, there is no demand for flowers in Europe and many customers in the United States cancelled purchase orders for the Mother’s Day Holiday (the 2nd most important day of the year for the Colombian flower industry after Valentine’s Day).
