Although the 'E' in EQR stands for Ecuadorian, this operation’s headquarter is in the U.S. which is the biggest channel for EQR, but look out world: this grower’s reach is spreading rapidly across the globe. Their latest achievement is to become a supplier to the  Online Flower Auction (OFA) in the Netherlands, a cloud buying application mainly for European professionals started by a group of renowned Dutch rose growers in the spring of 2022 that became an instant success.

EQR at OFA

For the rose buyers at OFA, it is worth knowing that EQR is auctioning the following top varieties of  Ecuadorian roses: Explorer, Sunset X-Pression, Brighton, Mondial, Pink Mondial, Candlelight, Frutteto, Carpe Diem, Queens Crown, and Esperance.

 

 

Growing & Selling

“Location, location, location”:  since EQR’s farms are located at the foothills of the Cotopaxi volcano (the highest active volcano in Ecuador), this growing region is rich in volcanic soil, and because of the altitude, the sunlight is stronger helping to achieve a more beautiful and vibrant rose with larger heads and a longer vase life.

The 'Q' in EQR stands for Quality. It's the quality of the whole process beginning with the selections of the ideal rose, garden rose and spray rose varieties with the world's best breeders like De Ruiter, United Selections, and Interplant. Quality is not only about the product but also about the people who make this Farm operation a success: from the fields to the marketplace at every level and every department, the EQR Team is committed to helping their clients achieve their goals.
