Florequisa was founded in 1985 in Otón, in a place called The Wind Valley, “Guairapamba” by Elena Terán and her partners, being one of the first Flower Companies in Ecuador. Elena Terán managed the company since its beginnings, being one of the first women in Ecuadorian Flower Industry. Florequisa’s founders and Elena Terán set a legacy in floriculture and every people’s heart. For Elena Terán, Florequisa is not only a company, it’s her life; and the people, her greatest gift. Always looking for all its people to keep going, to study, to be a strength at home and always seeking to empower the Ecuadorian woman and especially Florequisa woman.
Our founders have been a key piece in Florequisa thanks to their great experience, knowledge and love for this industry, they raised this company making it globally recognized for its high quality, professionalism and exceptional service, setting a paradigm for other Flower Companies. Florequisa has empowered work, personal and professional growth of its people, allowing a great part of them grow in the company since their early years, like our current General Manager, Javier Yépez, who learned and lived most of his life in Florequisa and now in a teamwork with our founders, leads the management of the company keeping the same human philosophy and love for the company and its people.
Today, we’ve become one of the 5 Ecuador’s Leading Flower Growers and Exporters of Fresh Cut Flowers, but we are more than that. We are the second home for hundreds of people; economic and labor strength for Flower Industry and Ecuador; we strive to become the best place to work, we are Otón’s heart
