The European Union is the main destination for the tropical flowers exported by Pernambuco, responding for 99, 12 % of the total sales to foreign countries (in value) in 2005. The methodology was based on a qualitative analysis, and took the commodity systems approach as conceptual reference, complemented by the supply chain management approach. Besides secondary data, it was also used primary sources information by means of interviews conduced on the “key-actors” and surveys in the field. Pernambuco flower exporters have used as distribution channels the export consortium, the commercial exporter companies and the Cooperative Veiling Holambra.
