Why take action?

Companies trading in flower bulbs and perennials felt the need to join forces with regard to issues relating to sustainability and quality. For this reason, a manifest in which the signatories stated their objectives regarding sustainability and quality was signed in September 2017 by a large majority of the sector that supplies retail businesses.

Their aim was to take an active role in making an ongoing contribution to a flower bulb and perennial sector that will meet tomorrow’s demands for high-quality products produced and marketed with respect for individuals, society as a whole and the environment. Priorities established by the manifesto:
  1. The flower bulbs and perennials to be purchased by the participating companies will have been sustainably produced and processed.
  2. The quality of the products to be purchased and marketed (including authenticy of variety and flowering capacity) will be guaranteed by an agreement on guidelines concerning monitoring and transparency.
  3. The sustainability and quality of the signatories’ operations will receive their ongoing attention.
The participants are jointly responsible for more than eighty percent of the flower bulbs sold on the global consumer market. The Platform is being facilitated by Anthos and iBulb.

Meanwhile beside flower bulbs and perennials, potted bulbs and bulb flowers are also part of the platform.
