Flamingo Produce, formerly known as Finlays Fresh Produce, is one of the largest growers of Fairtrade cut flowers in the world, producing over 450 million stems per annum for the UK and continental European markets.
Flowers are a fundamental part of the Flamingo portfolio and the group of companies that make up the division reflect all the stages of the growing and service delivery process. From propagation of plant material and production on hydroponics (growing plants in sand, gravel or liquid with added nutrients but no soil), to post-harvest treatment, preparation of complex packed-at-source bouquets, and then cold-chain transport from farm gate to international airports, this process concludes with delivery to markets worldwide.
In this short video, Craig Oulton, General Manager in Naivasha, explains how they are using water in a sustainable way to grow their flowers.
Our involvement in every stage of this process is essential in order to guarantee the quality, consistency, reliability and competitiveness that we believe our customers deserve and expect from us.
