Certification stamps on all plants – Groen-Direkt’s Spring Fair
The 6th and 7th of February will see the traditional opening of the new gardening season at Groen-Direkt’s Spring Fair. New at this edition of the annual event will be certification stamps on all the plants and products, informing buyers about the products’ sustainability.
Stronger Focus on Sustainability
Groen-Direkt introduced the certification stamps at the beginning of 2018. “Sustainable entrepreneurship is a must in our days, and also for the future,” says Gert Koert, Groen-Direkt’s co-director. “It’s also what consumers want. So it’s important for us to show them how sustainable our products are.”
Together with the certification organisation MPS and Hogeschool In Holland (University of Applied Sciences), Groen-Direkt supports its growers in their efforts to ensure or improve their certification.
About the Spring Fair The Spring Fair is the number-one international professional green fair of the year where garden centre managers, exporters and wholesalers from within and outside the Netherlands meet one another. Here, they find garden plants and houseplants, propagating materials and a wide range of Mediterranean products all under the same roof.
The fair also pays a lot of attention to the latest gardening trends and seasonal novelties. So all in all it’s the place to be for anyone who is professionally involved in creating green living environments. The Spring Fair is open from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. on both days at the usual address in Hazerswoude, the Netherlands.
