At the Trade Fair: MPS-ProductProof gives product guarantees of sustainable horticulture26 October 2016
At the Royal FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer, the company MPS (provider of certificates in the field of sustainability and the environment) presented the next phase of MPS-ProductProof. This systems reveals more transparently which active ingredients are found in horticultural products. It provides buyers with better guarantees about the horticultural product.
MPS-ProductProof is the result of a collaboration between MPS, VGB and a group of growers of various horticultural crops and Royal FloraHolland. Retailers and civil society groups were also closely involved in the development of this system that provides the transparency the sector demands. Finding an adequate system for all crops proved not to be an easy task, but we succeeded in creating a basic system. Dealers and the retail sector ask for MPS-ProductProof and the grower delivers it.
The buyer's wishes
With a MPS ABC-certificate, registration of crop protection within 24 hours and independent sampling, every sustainable horticulturalist can meet the wishes of the individual buyers without difficulty.
On Wednesday, 2 November 2016, at 13:00, MPS and Royal FloraHolland will launch the transparency tool MPS-ProductProof for market parties. You can attend this presentation in the Royal FloraHolland House. On Thursday, there will be a second session at 11:00. In addition, products from growers that already apply MPS-ProductProof rules can be admired at the MPS stand (number 21.8).
