Abstract:

The roses we enjoy may come with more thorns than we realize. Delving deep into the heart of the global flower industry, A BLOOMING BUSINESS shows us the difficult reality behind the pretty flowers.

A BLOOMING BUSINESS explores the human and environmental repercussions of the floral industry ... A rose may no longer smell as sweet.
