Netherlands: First officially allowed liquid postharvest chlorine product

Since this month ‘Florissant 520’, is officially allowed by the Dutch pesticide board (CTGB). This guarantees availability of this product for the coming years. Florissant is the only brand in flower preservatives that has a fluid chlorine product alongside the registered chlorine tablet (Florissant 500N).

The postharvest preservative for all cut flowers is liquid, and can be automatically dosed. Therefore, it is a perfect alternative to high-volume consumers of chlorine tablets.

Quality in flowers to stand out

“Quality is more and more important, both for farmers and wholesalers”, states Tjeerd de Looze, director of UFO Supplies, the company that sells Florissant in the Netherlands and abroad. “It is a way to differentiate and stand out in a difficult market.”

Enthusiastic importer

Marginpar, an importer of exclusive flowers in the Netherlands, uses Florissant 520 as a rehydration treatment. “We desire a universal product that meets the regulations of the Dutch auctions”, states Bram van Mil, who is enthusiastic about 520. “And by combining the correct postharvest treatment on our farms in Africa, and our facilities, we guarantee that our flowers have the best quality every day.”

Pink fluid

Florissant 520 is universal and suppresses bacteria growth in the water. To make sure that the chlorine does not vaporize, it is stabilized to stay active inside the bucket. Also, fresh batches are produced every week, in order to warrant the proper working. The pink component in the fluid helps to check usage.
