Just 1 day left until Valentine’s Day! You have seen Valentine’s Day from our coolers (Portland & Miami), as well as pictures from the farms, but what about when they land in Miami? We want to show you what happens when your wholesale roses arrive, then unloaded from the planes, which are then moved into holding coolers and ran through inspections. Definitely a different perspective and another dimension to the blooms that we work with each and every day.
Check out this Valentine’s Day behind-the-scenes video, which our very own Peter Sessler (Director of Rose Purchasing) makes an appearance on NBC 6’s news report yesterday!
“It’s estimated that 90-percent of the fresh flowers that are imported into the United States come through Miami International Airport. NBC 6’s Michael Spears reports from the airport.”
We love giving you a peak behind the curtain, so Peter shot a few more short videos while at the airport for the interview.
This next video is of flowers shipped from South America via UPS being unloaded off of the airplane at the MIA airport:
Next, the wholesale flowers are moved to the airport’s holding coolers:
And finally, if you speak Spanish, check out this video with Peter and Maria Forero, of our Mayesh Miami sales team:
Happy Valentine’s Day!
