MFT or “Mexican Flower Trading” as we’ve been known for most of our existence isn’t a Mexican company at all. We are a Canadian, family run wholesale florist. We specialize in retail ready bouquets that feature the maximum amount of Local products we can purchase, but incorporate the best the global floral market has to offer.
Our history is deeply rooted in Family- MFT is currently run by Stephanie- who is the 3rd generation of her family to lead in the Floral industry. The family’s involvement began with Stephanie’s Grandmother began importing into Montreal through “Pointet Flowers” primarily introducing Canada to Columbian floral offerings.
At the time, the industry was just starting to get a taste of the high quality products that the Columbian climate had to offer, and now they are the industry standard in quality and value.
Pointet Flowers opened an arm in Toronto in 1984, and soon after acquired a small firm that was making bouquets exclusively with flowers from Mexico- “Mexican Flower Trading Inc”-. Michael (Stephanie’s father) took the lead and headed up this operation and grew it using the core principals of freshness, value and quality. Michael incorporated more locally grown and diverse products that fit those values. The bouquet division grew separately under Michael’s careful eye.
Stephanie, (now a CMA), joined the bouquet business in 2008, and now she leads it; she has re-invigorated the company, bringing in fresh minds to the approach of bouquet making, and distribution and adds another dimension to the core values- Creativity. Quality, freshness, Value and Creativity are the core of what makes MFT great.
