Supply of plants with plant passport is nearing 100 percent18 December 2019
As of 14 December, a plant passport has been required to trade plants. After the first auction days, it appears that the vast majority of the supplied plants at Royal FloraHolland does meet these new requirements. We're talking about a percentage of no less than 99,5%.
Beforehand, growers and buyers were worried whether they would have everything in place on time. It appears that they did. For only a small percentage of the lots it was the case that the plant passport was missing or did not comply with the rules. In some cases the lot could still be auctioned by solving the problem with a follow-up call. Also the amount of reclamated plants due to a missing plant passport, were minimal.
We compliment all suppliers and buyers with their efforts to be prepared on time!
The requirements are as follows:
- As of 14 December 2019: a plant passport per tray or per plant to be sold individually from pot size 19.
- As of 1 July 2020: a plant passport per plant for pot size 10.
- If the plant passport is missing or incorrect, the product cannot be auctioned.
Tips of your customers
- Make sure that the plant passport is legible.
- Make sure that the plant passport is clearly visible.
- Add the Positive Inspection code P01 009 (= Plant passport per plant) to your product. That way, your clients can instantly see that all of your plants have their own plant passport.
- In the case of multi-use packaging, preferably place the sticker on a plant or sleeve, to prevent the packaging from getting dirty. If that's not an option, always make use of Normpack stickers.
