Value of the import and export of orchids in the Netherlands 2008-2019

Every year, a large amount of orchids was exported from the Netherlands. In the last decade, the export trade of orchids far outnumbered the import trade. In 2019, the export trade was valued at 71 million euros. By comparison, the import trade was worth just over six million euros. The total value of trees, plants and flowers exported from the Netherlands in 2019 was over 9.8 billion euros.

 Exporting tulips 

  The Netherlands is well-known for producing flowers, but orchids are by no means the country’s most important flowery export product. The trade in tulips and tulip bulbs, for example, is much more important to the country. In 2019, the value of tulip bulb exports alone was roughly 215 million euros.

Decline in flower growing companies

Producing flowers was the responsibility of around 900 flower growing companies in the Netherlands. In the last decade, however, the number of flowers growing companies in the country decreased significantly. In 2007, there were nearly 2,100 flower producers. A decade later, less than half of these producers was left.
