Forty thousand Colombian flowers will enhance one of Europe's major 2010 social events: the June 19 wedding of Princess Victoria of Sweden to entrepreneur Daniel Westling in Stockholm.
Twenty-four Colombian flower farms, with the support of Proexport Office, will contribute to the flowers needed for the arrangements, bouquets and floral decorations. All flowers have earned the Florverde certification label, which ensures socio-environmental standards for flower production are met.
"Colombia has earned its position as the top provider of flowers to the United States and as the second largest exporter worldwide," says Augusto Solano, president of the Association of Colombian Flower Exporters (Asocolflores). "Colombia is proud to have our beautiful flowers play an important role in this marriage."
