On December 25, Bernhard Schenke, deputy director general of Dalat Hasfarm, said the company has exported the first two shipments of flowers to Russia, each batch containing 7,000 to 8,000 branches.

From these shipments, the company will study the Russian consumer taste as well as swiftly complete the phytosanitary procedures for regular flower exports to the Russian market from the beginning of 2013.
According to Bernhard Schenke, flowers of Dalat Hasfarm ensure quality and meet the requirements of the Russian market.
However, he added, the difficulty remains in the difference in temperature--Russia being at present minus 20 degrees celsius--so the company has to adjust the time for cutting flowers.
Dalat Hasfarm has exported to 10 countries and territories and the export volume in 2012 was 54 million branches and 200,000 seedlings.
