Our supply chain partners
Forming and maintaining long-term partnerships, with both our customers and our supply chain partners, is extremely important. All our supply chain partners are carefully selected on the basis of their knowledge, skills and power to innovate and help us add value for our customers.
We strive for openness and transparency within our supply chain. This enables confidence in our supply chain partners and ensures we can learn from each other. It also enables us to further our organisation’s development, continue innovating and do even more to optimise and develop our service and offer to customers.
We always strive for long-term partner relationships. With our growers, suppliers, distributors and, of course, our customers. Our cooperations are based on the cornerstones of mutual trust, willingness to develop together, transparent and open business practices, honouring agreements and passion. All of these are prerequisites for achieving the best possible outcomes for every partner.
Our supply chain partners are primarily selected on the basis of their professional qualities, ability to innovate, focus on service and creativity. Our family is especially proud of our preference for working with preferred partners.
Dutch Flower Awards
Cooperation between our companies and our supply chain partners is extremely important for the development and growth of our customers’ businesses. Every year since 2002, we have therefore recognised our most valued partners by presenting Dutch Flower Awards in three categories: Cut flowers, Plants and Foreign supplier. And, since 2015, our Preferred Partner recognition for non-grower suppliers.
Due to the exceptional circumstances we all found ourselves in this year, in 2020 DFG symbolically presented just one very special award to all its Dutch and foreign growers: the “Big thank you Award”.
