Processing Roses

Processing roses is important because growing flowers is an art, and no matter how good your blooms are before cutting, if you don’t follow proper post-harvest techniques and handling procedures, then the beautiful quality of that freshly cut rose will never get enjoyed by the consumer. Storage and distribution are also important when processing roses.

Goals:

  1. Improve the quality and value of the roses for consumers.
  2. Reduce post-harvest losses and increase marketing efficiency.
  3. Solve particular problems in handling roses to maintain quality and safety.
