Metz Ecuador

Since October 2004 Victor van Dijk (30) a Dutchman from the Westland area, famous
for it's flower production, has been running our Quito office in Ecuador, he has lived in
Ecuador for 7 years and has vast knowledge of the growers and transportation. This
familiarity with the area has worked well and Metz are now sending flowers to USA,
Canada and Europe. These are of the highest quality being sourced from our own
partner growers and packed by them in Metz Ecuador boxes.

Ecuador has many climate zones so a large variety of flowers can be produced from
large headed roses, tropicals to summer flowers. The trend at the moment is for garden
style, large headed roses and these can be obtained in a variety of colours and the
highest quality. A capital E on the pricelist tells you that these are sourced from
Ecuador and you will see are competively priced. So why not give them a try or some of
the beautiful range of tropicals and summer flowers that are presently available.
