It would seem that many in the cut flower industry would like to buy and sell within a British market as well as using some of our global suppliers.
This of course has to be championed, but it would seem that there are many fundamental obstacles in the way.
Some of the major complaints are:
- Lack of funding / investment.
- No British auction system ensuring growers are paid the same day.
- High costs involved such as taxes, land charges, service charges.
- Lack of consistency and quality.
