Looking back at the past period
Due to the Coronavirus, the lockdowns and scarcity of some products, this period was different from other years. This blog will also be different from other blogs. This is because in the first part of the blog we mainly look back on a number of Christmas products. We received a couple of photos from our suppliers that we would like to share with you, even though we no longer sell the products.
Improving Wild Harvesting Practices and Transparency in the Floral Chain
Wild harvesting of foliage or decorative greens is currently out of scope within the Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI) sustainable sourcing guidelines, because none of the approved certification schemes makes allowance for wild harvesting practices. That is why a consortium of FSI members and partners, comprising leading company ColorÍginz (part of Dutch Flower Group), Westland Bloemen Export (WBE), Adomex International and Floral Trade Group, have started a focused project to research the possibility of developing a mutual scheme for wild harvesting of foliage.
Happy colours in April thanks to Gerbera
Our flower arranger Tanja van Bijlevelt inspires us again this month. Just before Easter, she created several beautiful flower arrangements. To add a fun effect, she picked a variety of different types of Gerbera. Inspired and ready to start yourself?
TRIP TO CENTRAL AMERICA, CARAMBA FARMS
Representatives of the WBE-group travelled to Central America last November to visit their main suppliers of decoration greens in Costa Rica and Guatemala. During this trip we were able to look at the growing and production cycles of the different products at the farms and to maintain the long-term relationships with our suppliers.
