After visiting the flower plantation, we went to have a glance at the massive garage they use to make the bouquets ready to export abroad.
The process, briefly:
The flowers are cut from the plantation and put carefully in fabric beds as we can see below. Then, they are sent to fumigation, in order to kill insects that could destroy them later. Afterwards, women take flowers one by one and send them to the right bouquets. All the bouquets are put in boxes and sent to the fridge (2 to 4 degrees) for about 2 to 5 hours before being exported by plane.
Thanks very much Lucy for the visit! It’s always interesting to know where our supermaket’s products come from.
