Colombia´s exceptional conditions such as high mountain climate with cool temperatures all year round and non-changing number of light hours/day make this piece of land a unique place to grow flowers efficiently, meeting high quality standards and moderate production costs.
GEFFA, which means Associated Group of Flower Growers and Exporters and founded 10 years ago, is an association of around 40 small and medium farmers in Colombia, growing approximately 400 hectares (1000 acres) of different varieties of flowers.
GEFFA is sponsored by FENALCO (National Merchants Association). This is the biggest association in Colombia that gathers around 50 industries of the national economy. FENALCO supports GEFFA´s companies to strengthen their industrial and administration processes in order to improve their competitiveness.
Most Associates have achieved the Rainforest Alliance Certification meaning that all processes comply with Colombian Legal social welfare as well as a sustainable environmentally friendly production.
