Brexit could wilt huge Dutch flower trade - Capital FM Kenya
“We are preparing for all kind of disturbances along the way,” Pasma told AFP at the huge warehouse in Aalsmeer, near Amsterdam. “The worst is a hard Brexit and we are preparing for that as well.”
The Netherlands has long been famous for tulips, and flowers remain a vital part of the Dutch economy, with seven billion euros ($8 billion) a year in sales.
Britain is the third largest market for the Netherlands’ flower export business, after Germany and France, accounting for 850 million euros.
As it is now, flowers are flown in from around the world before being sent seamlessly to Britain or other parts of the European Union’s single market.
– ‘Fresh product’ –
However, the political chaos around Britain’s impending exit from the EU on March 29, 2019 has left businesses unsure about what kind of trade arrangements — if any — will follow.
Businesses across the continent have been worrying about this since Britain voted to leave in 2016, but nowhere is the problem as pertinent as in a business where only the freshest produce will do.

Flowers on parade
Twenty huge floats and 30 lavishly decorated cars follow a route from Noordwijk, a town west of Netherlands, to Haarlem, outside Amsterdam. Visitors throng to catch a glimpse of this colourful flower spectacle. Local organisations put on their thinking caps months before the parade, to come up with a great design, how to build and decorate it. The choice of flowers has also to be decided. Dahlias are a common choice as they are grown in large community gardens.I had heard so much about these floats and even read up about them, but nothing prepared me for the sight that met my eyes. I was blown away by the sheer genius of it all. Live music and costumed performance accompanies the floatsGet setThree days before the parade, there is frenzied activity as the floats will be “pierced”. Ha! Got you there, didn’t I? Pierced means to cover and decorate with bulb flowers. Hundreds of volunteers gather and get down to work piercing or pinning hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, dahlias and more to the floats.I am always interested in finding out the hows and whys of any celebration. So, I dropped in to the local library and did some research. I found that this began in the end of the 1940s, just after World War II. After the strife and terror of the war, there was a great need to lighten up and have a laugh. So, people began to plan a parade...a party so to spea... (The Hindu)Apr 20, 2018
