On 24 August 2020, we took a further step in the roll-out of the Fc588 flower bucket. The Fc588 is now also available for Gerbera suppliers. 32 product groups already enjoy the benefits of the new, efficient packaging and more than 15 million rotations have taken place!

Last year, we launched the Fc588 and matching support shelf Fc598. We opted for a phased introduction per product group in order to ensure sufficient availability.
Use by product group Gerbera
From Monday, 24 August, 2020 Gerbera growers can also supply (Direct trade) in the Fc588, with and without the Fc598.
Mans Flowers: "Fc588 has a great number of benefits for Gerberas"
Gerbera Grower Mans Flowers sees a great number of benefits in the Fc588 flower bucket. Marius Mans (MD) and Arjan van den Bogerd (Sales Department) told us: "The Fc588 has the same packaging configuration (160 stems), but it causes considerably less damage to the stems than the Fc544 with inlay sheet. We're seeing fewer crooked stems, too. Moreover, the bucket dispenses with cardboard, which is an improvement in terms of costs, labour and sustainability. We are very enthusiastic, therefore, that the Fc588 has been released for the product group Gerbera."
Further roll-out autumn 2020
The roll-out of the Fc588 is set to continue this autumn, with more products to be supplied in it and more flower suppliers being added to the list of users. We will inform you as soon as products and launch dates are known.
