Protests sparked by a controversial proposal for tax reform last week in Colombia caused minor delays in flower shipments from some farms but did not seriously disrupt the flow of cut flowers and foliage for Mother’s Day. Although protests continue, it seems unlikely that they will have any major impact on the floral supply chain — at least in the short term.
