New Zealand Mother's Day in Review

By all accounts this has been one of the most difficult Mother's Days in recent years for both growers and retailers alike. I was interested to read in the New Zealand Herald this week that some Auckland Florists are blaming the recent acquisition of Floramax by UFG as the cause of the extraordinary high prices on the market. We disagree. The answer lies in the simple matter of supply and demand. Quite simply there were not enough flowers on any of the markets throughout New Zealand during the key Mother's Day supply period. As a result flower prices went up. The reasons for the lack of supply can be found in the climatic conditions of the past three months, with many crops flushing early due to a much warmer than usual autumn, significant crop losses to weather events and botrytis, in some cases up to 100%, and the fact that by falling on the 14th of May, Mother's Day was as late in May as it can be, further aggravating the impact of early flushing crops.
I was also concerned to read that the same Florist complaining about the high prices also bragged that when there were two auctions in Auckland she could place buyers on both and move her purchasing to which ever auction had the lower prices on the day. As a grower I found this type of behaviour very concerning. It undermines the integrity of the auction system and is blatantly unfair to growers, who once they have consigned their product to a particular auction cannot move it to another if they discover higher prices down the road. While there will undoubted be some teething problems the creation of a single auction in Auckland can only be a good thing for buyers and growers alike
