Valuable flower exports banned(01-02-07)

HARARE - Millions of dollars worth of Zimbabwean flower exports to Germany are said to have been banned because of non-compliance with German packaging legislation.
Flower industry sources said this might be because the European market is undergoing a transformation phase likely to discriminate

against products on environmental grounds.
The banned flowers were returned because the packaging was said to have been unfriendly to the environment. A strong echo-packaging movement is said to have been lobbying the whole of the European market to insist on packaging with recyclable materials.
Although a spokesman for the Export Flowers Growers Association of Zimbabwe said none of their members had complained about flowers being returned because of a packaging problem, a Zimtrade source confirmed that some flowers had been returned.
