At Florverde® we are very proud to have held the first edition of the Florverde® Sustainable Flowers Awards. And what better time than during Proflora 2017 in October, in Bogotá.
We had the great pleasure of recognizing the work of five floriculture companies in Colombia that have excelled in different aspects of the implementation of our certification scheme. Especially for their strong social, environmental and economic practices, promoting sustainable flowers for the wellbeing of all.
In the words of our director, Ximena Franco, "a producer of certified Florverde® Sustainable Flowers, turns the concept of sustainability into a tangible reality for its people, its environment and its business. The best result that a buyer can obtain: the wellbeing of everything and everyone involved".
