Write about Climate Problems Leading to Supply Limitations
In the flower business we are not free of regular changes in the weather that could affect the production from our suppliers. When these weather events are known for their seasonal arrivals and intensity, they are usually handled and the risk of damage is controlled; however, there are climatologically phenomenons that are more strength and arrivals can’t be predicted. This is the case of “La Nina” phenomenon that visits South America every seven years leaving catastrophic disasters. Colombia, which supplies 65 percent of all the flowers in the USA, is one of the most affected places from this climatologically phenomenon, and as a result increases in labor costs, and uncertainty with the quality of the products and prices when turning to other suppliers are expected.
