Valentine’s Day at Mayesh Portland

 

The week leading up to Valentine’s Day is always the busiest week of the year for both us, the wholesaler, and you, the florist! Local news station KGW stopped by our Mayesh Portland branch to get a behind the scenes look into this busy yet lovely holiday. Check out their interview with branch manager Amy Gebhardt to see just what goes on in order for us to get those bunches on bunches of red roses to you!

Forget Christmas, one of the biggest holidays of the year is upon us… Valentine’s Day! There’s a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes at Mayesh to stock our customers’ shelves with roses… so we thought it would be fun to share the process leading up to the big day.

 

Juan Carlos is part of our Purchasing Team, and every year, from about January 27th through February 6th, he visits the farms in Ecuador to walk the fields and greenhouses for quality control and to make sure our orders meet our expectations.

 

During his visits, he’s checking on a few things…

 

QUALITY:  that our roses are coming in free of issues, such as botrytis and other diseases

 

TIMING:  that  the farms are on time with the orders and deliveries, and then that the Cargo agency at the airport is on schedule

 

Valentine’s Day is most definitely one of the busiest times of the year for us, but it is so important to us to provide quality products to our customers for such a big day. We wish you all a successful holiday… see you on the other side!

South American Farm Direct Flowers

 

Did you know… all of our South American flowers are bought farm direct? That means that you’ll never get flowers from us that have been stored in a broker’s refrigerator. Our flowers are cut fresh to order and shipped immediately to us keeping strict cold chain management.

To ensure the highest quality & freshest product, our Mayesh purchasing team travels to our flower farms to check on things in person… in fact, they were just there making sure that your Valentine’s day roses & flowers were not only the freshest products but that they were also ready to arrive for your pre-books on time!

Check out these photos showing the entire process from greenhouse harvest to sorting & grading, packing & pre-cooling, and arrival at our Mayesh Miami distribution hub for PQ inspection!

We take the extra step!
