Japanese Cut Flower Market to Expand after Orchid Wins Award

A phalaenopsis orchid developed in Taiwan won the prize at the international flower show in the Netherlands last months, giving its growers the confidence they needed to expand the cut flower market in Japan, according to the flower company executive.

Vice general manager of the Taipei-based Royal Base Corp., Lin Hou-Chih, who took part in developing the flower, the flower had a quality which was named “Join Angel” was what helped it win the prize. The “Horti Fair 2008” took place in Amsterdam and the flower won first prize in the category of phalaenopsis cut flower.

Flowers from this company also won second and third prize as well, in this category.

Lin says, the awards these flowers have won will help expand the companies market shares, especially in Japan for white cut flowers. They will be selling these flowers for funerals as the traditional mourning colour of Japan is white.
