Ecuadorian Pavilion brings superior roses and gypsophilias in Hortiflorexpo

THE 19th Hortiflorexpo is held from May 10 to 12 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. Visitors are amazed by the exclusive beauty of Ecuadorian fresh-preserved roses and gypsophilias. Flower importers are quite interested in developing business with Ecuadorian companies.

For the first time, the government of the Republic of Ecuador, represented by PROECUADOR Commercial Office of Ecuador in Shanghai, is supporting eight flower Ecuadorian exporters to attend Hortiflorexpo fair as an Ecuadorian Pavilion.  The products exhibited on the fair are unique roses and gypsophilias transported from Ecudaor.

Hortiflorexpo is the number one Floriculture and Horticulture trade expo in China, also a leading platform for this industry in Asia. Professional Floriculture and Horticulture trade fair is becoming the best choice of Ecuadorian flower companies to know about and develop Chinese market, where they are looking for more clients. Ecuadorian ambassador José María Borja Lopez presented Hortiflorexpo opening ceremony and visited the Ecuadorian booth. He sincerely wished the fair a great success and all Ecuadorian exhibitors a fruitful effect.

PRO ECUADOR selected eight Ecuadorian flower companies including QUATOROSES,MALIMA,FLORECOT GROUP-CAMPTEC,MONTEROSAS FARMS,GALAPAGOS FLORES,MUCH FLOWERS and GLAMOUR ROSES. They are flower exporters and professional logistic company with cooling system.

Ecuadorian gypsophila is distinguished from other countries by its high quality, button size and color intensity. Ecuadorian roses stand out from numerous competitors and win a reputation all over the world.

Each Ecuadorian flower travels by airplane for more than 48 hours to come to China and mainly transferred in Los Angeles or Amsterdam. Strong vitality of Ecuadorian flowers ensures their 15 to 20 days of storage after arriving China.  


Ecuadorian roses considered the best in the world due to its large buds, long vertical stems, color intensity and longer vase life. The roses of 60-70cm vertical stems are the most popular in China. The best rose’s varieties are cultivated on the foothills of the Ecuadorian volcanoes, at high altitude of 2800 meters, where the sun shines up to 12 hours per day throughout the year. Ecuador, the country closest to the sun, with stable and comfortable temperature has become the ideal cultivation base for roses.  

Ecuador's newly formed government will take over on May 24, and will further discuss agricultural tariffs with Chinese government. Based on constant flowers exportation and mango that began exporting last year, Ecuadorian government hopes to further expand the exportation of chocolate.

The Commercial Office of Ecuador in Shanghai is one of the three offices that PROECUADOR has successfully established in China. The goal is twofold: to facilitate trade between Ecuadorian exporters and interested importers from the central region of China, and also to attract potential investors for Ecuador’s many ongoing public and private projects.

PROECUADOR (Ecuador's Institute of Export and Investment Promotion) is the state entity within the Ministry of Foreign Trade in charge of assisting in the promotion of Ecuadorian exports and investments. Rather than a public agency, PROECUADOR is more a trading partner that maintains constant contact with local producers and exporters, as well as with those foreign importers and investors interested in doing business with Ecuador, though more than international offices abroad.
