Our story

Dutch Flower Group is a unique family of 30 specialized trading companies who, together, serve the entire floral chain. We work hard to offer our customers top quality cut flowers, mixed bouquets and/or plants. Each company has its own customer focus and approach.

While every company is individually managed, they each benefit from shared business knowledge. This enhances individual expertise and results in higher standards of quality and service that benefits all of our customers, all over the world.

History

Dutch Flower Group was established on 1 January 1999 as a result of a merger between export companies OZ Group (which began in 1959), belonging to the Van Zijverden family, and the Van Duijn Groep (which began in 1969), belonging to the Van Duijn family. Each subsidiary was a specialist within its own market segment and the merger came about as a result of power — power to work together, to share knowledge and to approach markets directly. This structure still forms the basis for the current organisation, where specialisation, increases in scale, cost leadership and quality of employees are the differentiating forces.
