Strict temperature checks in the logistics chain guarantee shelf life. Van den Berg works with Flowerwatch; together they carefully supervise quality in the logistics chain. Flowerwatch and Van den Berg Roses hold monthly blossom tests and constantly employ new techniques to improve shelf life, reliability and the cool chain.
To prevent cold and heat damage, the temperature is measured three times in each shipment. The first time is at the nursery, the second time is at the airport and lastly, upon arrival at our location in Poeldijk. Before the flowers are loaded onto the plane in Kenya, the temperature is brought down to two degrees with a vacuum cooler.
