Florverde: Colombian Growers' Commitment to our Workers and our Natural Resources
Florverde is a unique certification to ensure all flowers grown and harvested in Colombia meet specific social and environmental standards. This program was started ten years ago by a forward looking group of Colombian flower growers to insist on a common level of best practices that would improve the lives and living standards of all floral farm workers and their families. In addition to establishing social benchmarks, Florverde® standards preserve and protect the rich soil and natural resources for the industry's farmers for generations to come and satisfy global demand and desire for high-quality, affordable flowers year round. In 2003, independent verification by SGS Group, a global leader in inspection, verification, testing and certification, was implemented to assure our customers and consumers that these standards were being met.
