About RYK - Founder

Hi, I'm the founder & CEO of As you have probably gathered by now, I love flowers. This love affair began in the early nineties when I had the opportunity to visit the Floriade in Holland, where the landscape had been transformed into a beautiful garden of gorgeous flowers. I was also looking for a new career and I thought what better career than one which is so emotionally fulfilling and beautiful. I started my floral career as an importer of seed material and an exporter of flowers, but it was floral gifting that was my true love. So when the Internet came along in 2000 I set-up, allowing people to gift flowers conveniently through the Internet. Shortly after, I started getting requests for the overseas delivery of flowers to friends, family and co-workers. Country by country, using my floral industry contacts, I identified the leading florists in each country and set-up a network that today allows our customers to send high quality flowers in over 150 countries. Ofcourse, Flora2000 goes far beyond my own effort. I have been blessed with a skilled and dedicated team; and excellent florist partners worldwide. I hope through this blog you will learn more about all of us and give us feedback that keeps us improving. Thank You.
