Actions speak louder than words. As the #1 purchasing platform for florists, we take our responsibility. Therefore because it is our duty, it is part of our mission: to allow European florists to shop without any worries. We are a stable partner in the sustainable world of tomorrow. These internationally recognized certifications are part of that.

Flourishing Together

We follow the flowers and plants of certified suppliers throughout the entire chain. The EKT is indispensable in this regard. This contains the grower with a unique number per product. This makes the products traceable and excludes unauthorized use of certification. And is part of Global GAP. We call this traceability Chain of Custody.

For example, Van de Plas wants to provide florists with beautiful quality roses all year round. A grower from Africa, a risk area, offers these. We only purchase roses from this grower if he is certified in G.A.P, environment and people. Our motto is, therefore: flourishing together. You don’t become a sustainable flower wholesaler on your own. Together with our Flourishing Partners, we go for sustainable.
