Since the beginning, we at Euroflorist have been committed to helping people connect with each other through flowers from our professional retail florists. Whether it is across town, throughout the country, or around the world, we touch people with flowers.
In 1982 Peter Jungbeck established the company to service Swedish florists with a better floral order relay system. From his background in the technology business, Mr. Jungbeck from the start provided florists with the best platform for trading floral orders between one another.
In 1990 the company's name was changed from Svensk Blomsterförmedling to Euroflorist and Mr. Jungbeck embarked on an expansion plan to become what is today the largest member florist relay network outside North America. Euroflorist offers complete country wide coverage in each market in which it operates to ensure all flower orders are designed and delivered by a professional retail florist. The Company is also the largest order contributing member of Teleflor International which includes over 54,000 member florists. As a result, Euroflorist can offer same day delivery of fresh flowers designed by a professional florist to almost any corner of the world.
Euroflorist has been an industry pioneer on many fronts. In 1988, the company conceived and developed the Euroflorist FlowerCard for use as payment in EuroFlorist member florist shops. Since then millions of FlowerCards have been sold across Europe. In August 1995, the Company established its consumer website and was the first in Europe to sell flowers over the internet.
As an established international company, Euroflorist has always maintained its head office in Malmö, Sweden. The company has operations across Europe, from establishing local florist relay networks from the ground up to acquisitions of existing florist relay network companies.
Euroflorist is a privately owned company and its main investor is Litorina Kapital based in Stockholm, Sweden.
