Flower trading center to open in Da Lat

A flower trading center will be established in the resort town of Da Lat in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, said the provincial People’s Committee on January 5.

The center covers an area of around 16.6 hectares at the bottom of Mimosa Pass, 10km away from Da Lat, providing a maximum number of 2.5 million branches a day and purchasing power of 550 million flower branches a year.

The local authorities hoped that the center will help local growers improve the quality of flowers after harvesting, keep flowers fresh longer and increase the flower value as well as creating a trading platform for flower farmers to supply flowers to markets with transparent prices.

To date, Lam Dong province has had a total flower growing area of 7,760 ha with an annual output of more than 2.4 billion flower branches.
