Ecuador is a producer of high-quality roses in South America. The volcanic high altitude soil and clear weather deliver exceptional conditions for growing high-quality roses. The sunlight is far stronger at the Equator than it is elsewhere and ensures a constant and fast growing process of the roses. Roses are the second important product that Ecuador exports to Canada, USA, China and Europe, etc.
José Martin Perujo, the grower at the “Rosadex Rosefarm”, said : “The Chinese prefer dyed varieties roses, and the Europeans prefer large roses. The “Rosadex Rosefarm” tries producing new varieties of roses to please customers from all over the World.
Rose plantations give jobs and permit that the villages near the farms improve their lifestyle. Children can go to the school or have access to health programs. Women working at the farms can bring their kids to the farm-owned daycare centers.
