FSI is the leading initiative for making the international horticultural chain sustainable and has a concrete goal: in 2020, 90% of the flowers and plants grown or traded by the members is sustainable. What does this mean for you?

Consumers' demands for fair, reliable and sustainably produced flowers and plants keep increasing. Retailers, including the major international supermarkets, garden centres, DIY stores and e-commerce companies, are imposing more requirements in terms of sustainability. 

Sustainable cultivation

The members of FSI have agreed that 'sustainable cultivation' means fulfilling the requirements for a sustainability certificate. For most growers, this translates into obtaining a MPS-GAP or GlobalG.A.P. certificate. Would you like to know what sustainable cultivation means for your company? We'd be happy to assist you.
