Guatemalan succulent plants, aloe vera and protea were displayed in Germany
Ponytail plants, sansevieria plants, flowers and foliage were some of the products displayed by AGEXPORT’s Ornamental Plants, Flowers and Foliage Commission in Germany’s IPM Essen 2020 event, with support of the European Union’s “More Competitive Cooperatives and SMEs” project. IPM Essen is one of the main international fairs for these products.
IPM Essen is an event that directly influences Guatemalan exports to the European market. This event joins the main global players of the gardening industry, which is why for more than 10 years Guatemala has participated on this fair to using as the entrance platform for the European market. This year, we formed a delegation of 10 companies that participated on this event with products like succulent plants, aloe vera and protea plants; said Mrs. Brigitte Obrock, manager of AGEXPORT’s Ornamental Plants, Flowers and Foliage commission.
The Guatemalan delegation that participated on IPM Essen 2020 incuded Plantas Ilimitadas, La Moraleja Exports, Ivagro, Palki, Vita Farms, Plantexpo, Follajes La Fauna, Maluvea, Dummen Orange/FIDES and Corporación TAK.
One of our strategic pillars is to consolidate as key providers for the European market and export products with high added value for customers in these countries. Participating at IPM Essen 2020 was key, as we were able to build a database of more than 100 new clients in Europe, which we will share with members of our commission to increase their businesses with these countries; said Mrs. Obrock.
