Twelve new product groups launched with Fc58802 March 2020
On 2 March 2020, we took a further step in the roll-out of the Fc588 flower bucket. The Fc588 is now also available to suppliers of Asclepias, Aster, Astilbe, China aster, Campanula, Lepidium, Ornithogalum, Peony, Ruscus, Sedum, Trachelium and Viburnum. The roll-out will continue at the end of June this year, with the product group Rose.

In March 2019, we introduced the new multiple-use flower bucket (Fc588) with matching support (Fc598) to our packaging pool, and it has already been used more than eight million times. There will be a phased roll-out per product.
Introduction for twelve new product groups
From Monday, 2 March 2020, growers of the seasonal flowers below can also supply (both Clock and Direct trade) in Fc588 and/or Fc598 buckets:
- China aster
Last year, we started with the introduction of flower bucket Fc588. We are opting for a phased introduction per product group in order to ensure sufficient availability, also during peak periods. Meanwhile, 30 product groups are already enjoying the benefits of the new, efficient packaging.
Use by product groups other than those released is not yet possible.
Start Rose June 2020
We are planning to release the product Rose for use of Fc588 and Fc598 at the end of June (week 27). Preparations are in full swing. Henry Heemskerk (Management Board Kariflex B.V.) is enthusiastic about the Fc588: "The roll-out of the Fc588 is coming along nicely and the flower bucket is making a lot of our processes more efficient. Orders are becoming smaller and that is why we increasingly use the CC-container, which is perfectly compatible with the Fc588. With the release of this new group of products, we've taken another new step. We are very excited about the launch for the product Rose at the end of June. We will be able to create even more benefits."
Load-factor improvement thanks to Fc588
Wherever possible, we work each day on improving our logistics services and increasing efficiency. By introducing the new efficient Fc588 flower bucket, we are responding to the increasing use of CC containers in the export trade, working to improve sustainability and ensuring that chain costs are reduced.
