Octoflor Has a Clear Mission - Spreading Its Tentacles to Connect the World

As Octoflor rises in the flower industry, so do their tentacles, the supreme part of the work they do to be present around the globe. But what is the meaning behind this special name? The octopus is a highly malleable sea creature that can change color, shape, and form at will to adapt to ever-changing conditions. Just like an octopus is perceptive, clever, inventive, and inquisitive, they are a company striving to implement the same core values.

Octopuses can stretch out and multitask on their own thanks to their eight tentacles, many hearts, and brains. All of these attributes are also present in Octoflor since the company strives to meet your needs without sacrificing dependability or quality. Tentacles that work together (Octo) and quality flowers delivered worldwide to make customers and people joyful (flor).
