to know the Polish culture. Due to this we will be able to better satisfy our customers now and in the

future."

 

Attractiveness of Polish market

to the largest flower auction Royal FloraHolland, in 2016 sales of cut flowers and pot plants in

Europe increased by 1% to 35.9 billion euros, and the strongest growth was observed in

Eastern European countries. In Poland there was increase of about 5 to 10%. With nearly 38

million of consumers, Poland is a promising market, both in terms of domestic distribution

and transfer to nearby countries, such as the Baltic States, Ukraine, Russia, the Czech

Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.

 

Flower shows and seminars

The visitors promotion focuses on florists, retailers and wholesalers. Flower Expo Poland and

GREEN IS LIFE are working together on promotional activities and seminar program. FEP in

pavilion where growers and traders will get the chance to present their offer. Products can be
