Baku, Fineko/abc.az. The flower market in Azerbaijan is likely to undergo restructuring. At that, flowers become the subject of fierce competition between producers and suppliers.
Informed sources say that the new flower producers are preparing to enter into the Azerbaijani market.
"Today flowers from Ecuador are prevailing in the segment of imported products in Azerbaijan. However, a number of other flower producing countries (e.g., Colombia) are trying if not to oust Ecuador, but get its share on the Azerbaijani market," the source said.
The manat rate decrease and the complexity of logistics do not confuse the claimants for the flower market of Azerbaijan.
As for Azerbaijani importers of flowers, they are well integrated with Ecuador, having investments in the Ecuadorian plantations.
