About Us

Who we are

Exotica Florist has been supplying Montreal with beautiful fresh flowers for over 40 years. Family owned and operated since 1970, trust in our work is understood and received by both our corporate clientele as well as the numerous families that gather to prepare for special occasions.

All our flowers are arranged by experienced professional designers in shop and hand delivered by our own in-house drivers and vehicles, or by our valued member partners who do the same.


Fair Trade

Currently the most widely recognized definition of fair trade was created by FINE, an informal Association of the four main Fair Trade networks (Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International, International Fair Trade Association, Network of European World-shops and European Fair Trade Association):

"Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers - especially in the South. Fair Trade organizations (backed by consumers) are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade."

 Fair Trade's strategic intent is:

  • deliberately to work with marginalized producers and workers in order to help them move from a position of vulnerability to security and economic self-sufficiency
  • to empower producers and workers as stakeholders in their own organizations
  • to actively to play a wider role in the global arena to achieve greater equity in international trade.

At Exotica Florist we are proud to support and sell flowers from the following growers that are followed by various local fair trade agreements as well as some under the SierreEco label.

Every time you give someone certified Fair Trade flowers, you are also giving a family a chance to earn a decent living and provide for their children while preserving the environment for future generations.

Sierra Eco - quality flowers that respect people and the environment!


 

Services

Flowers are the perfect way to thank an employee or client, welcome a new partner, close a deal, congratulate an associate or simply to say, happy birthday, happy anniversary, get well - any occasion that calls for.

Corporate clients are at the core of our business model and when a company choses a florist, they are choosing business partner that they rely on to properly represent them. We know this and treat you as any long term relationship should be treated. Gestures are good, but when conveying a message either to an employee, vendor or client, a gesture is not enough. You have to impress and let them know that your company went the extra mile to please.

 As well as:

  • Weekly office floral service
  • Special pricing for corporate parties including fundraising events
