Product group Gerbera to start using Fc588 on 24 August 202012 August 2020
After their introduction last year, 31 product groups now already enjoy the benefits of the new, efficient, Fc588 packaging. Product group Gerbera will start using Fc588 (and support shelf Fc598) on 24 August 2020. This applies to Direct Trade.
With the introduction of the Fc588, we are responding to the increasing use of CC containers in the export trade, working on further sustainability by decreasing the number of transport kilometres and reducing chain costs through more efficient use of loading configuration. To make the new Fc588, we recycle flower buckets that we no longer need.
Release starting Monday, 24 August 2020
From Monday 24 August, Gerbera growers can also supply (both
Clock and Direct Trade) in the Fc588 (bucket) and/or Fc598 (support
shelf). Thirty-one product groups now use this
new and efficient packaging and more than 15 million rotations have taken place.
Start issue of Fc588/Fc598 17 August 2020
Fc588 and Fc598 will be available to suppliers of Gerbera starting Monday, 17 August. The regulated issue will take place from our packaging locations in Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk, Rijnsburg and Eelde, and at Rhein-Maas Auction and Plantion.
