This year, Dutch Flower Group (DFG) has nominated nine growers for the Dutch Flower Awards 2015. The awards will be handed out in the categories cut flowers, plants and foreign suppliers.
It is the fourteenth time in a row that DFG, through the Dutch Flower Awards, puts its chain partners, the growers, in the spotlights. The announcement of the winners will take place at the FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer on Thursday 5 November at 3 p.m. at the DFG stand (18.2).
On 18 June 2015 Dutch Flower Group (DFG) held their annual Suppliers Day, which this time had online business as its key feature. Consumers are rapidly changing their buying behaviour and if you don't want to miss the boat it is important to change with it. It is increasingly more popular to buy online.
The winners of the Dutch Flower Awards 2014 were announced at the FloraHolland Trade Fair on Thursday 6 November: Together 2 Grow, Handelskwekerij Ubink and Fontana from Kenya. Together 2 Grow, a collaborative partnership between Alstroemeriakwekers Van Veen from Schipluiden and BZ Alstroemeria from Poeldijk, was recognised as the most valuable cut flower supplier of Dutch Flower Group (DFG). "We are honoured to win this", says Fedor van Veen.
The plant supplier with the greatest added value this year is Handelskwekerij Ubink from Kudelstaart. After the award ceremony Joke Ubink said: "It is wonderful that our involvement with the customer is appreciated in this way by receiving an award from our customer." DFG named Kenya's rose nursery Fontana Ltd as this year's most valuable foreign supplier. Girish Appanna: “Exciting, great to hear that our investments in an exclusive project with DFG has been decisive to honour us with this award.”
