From October 2 to 4, the 29th version of one of the most important flower fairs in the world was held in Bogotá – Proflora 2019. Florverde Sustainable Flowers participated in the fair with a stand, and, along with 26 other certified companies, presented the best sustainable flowers in the world
It is known that, although flower producers count on several certifications that are recognized worldwide and which cover the different aspects of sustainability, they will often be subject to the whim of someone in the chain who, for different reasons (many of which are of a non-technical nature) requires that they are evaluated by what he/she considers an “appropriate” standard or list from his/her point of view or knowledge of sustainability.
Comparing the social criteria of the certifications Florverde Sustainable Flowers (FSF) and Fairtrade (FLO)
In this new series of technical comparisons with other certifications standards, we will focus on the benchmarking between Florverde Sustainable Flowers and Fairtrade International – Hired Labour; exclusively on the social criteria of both.
The certified farm of Esmeralda Farms has 49 hectares located in La Ceja close to the city of Medellín. Congratulations to the whole Esmeralda flowers team for this great achievement.
