Dutch Flower Group (DFG) has, again this year, nominated nine growers for the Dutch Flower Awards. This is the 16th time DFG has put its supply chain partners in the spotlight by awarding these honours.

Preferred Partner Recognition

After presenting the Dutch Flower Awards, DFG will also take a moment to single out the supply chain partner who has earned special recognition for their intensive and future-focussed cooperation with Dutch Flower Group businesses. Immediately after handing out the Dutch Flower Awards, the Preferred Partner Recognition prize will be presented by DFG’s CEO Marco van Zijverden.
