longer growing field flowers for the fresh market.
“This step was necessary to focus the entire company on our core line of permanent botanicals. Our seasonal fresh flower business was simply becoming a smaller portion of our business each year, and frankly interfered with our ability to streamline Christmas and spring bookings on both continents," says Lawrence Hopman, national sales manager for Vyn Flowers. “You could say: we out grew it.”
Similarly their Colombian operation C.I. Vyn International SA, has been converted from a farm to a sales office/warehouse in Rio Negro, to serve south American bouquet makers and retailers.
Vyn is a leading supplier of design accents and inserts for potted plants and cut flowers, with customers throughout the Americas. Customers include wholesale florists, commercial flowers growers, and bouquet makers.
