Colombia’s flower industry saw a huge boom following the 1991 Andean Trade Preference Act. Passed by George H. W. Bush, the ATPA removed import duties on goods like Colombian roses to help eradicate drug-crop growth in South America. And the overwhelming majority of the rose farms in Colombia particularly come from the temperate highlands outside of Bogotá and Medellín.

Colombian Rose Farms Where Some of Your Favorite Roses Come From

Since the early 1990s, flowers have grown to become one of Colombia’s biggest exports – shipping more than $1.4 billion cut flowers per year, just slightly less than gold and coffee. Nearly 80% of the flowers go to the US. The tremendous growth of the Colombian floral industry is thanks to a slew of US policy changes, an excellent local ecosystem, a location that’s actually more convenient to export from than former floral hub California, cheaper labor, and a transportation network that includes everything from airplanes to massive refrigerated warehouses to modest cart.
