Drafting an agreement? Floriday and Order Risk Advisers can help09 February 2021
Recently, we have asked Walter Schoenmakers and Eline Verschoor, Order and Risk Advisers at RoyalFloraHolland, a number of questions about agreement options. Order and risk advice is a service that they have been providing to growers and buyers for many years. Recently, this service has become easy to use within your business via Floriday. Do you work with contracts a lot? Or would you like to know more about it? Then read this interview, including tips of the experts!
The preparation of an agreement and then uploading the agreement into Floriday is accessible to anyone. Is this your first time preparing an agreement and are you dealing with a complicated agreement? The Order Risk Advisers can help you on your way.
Can you briefly describe what an Order Risk Adviser at RFH does?
Walter / Eline: Order and risk advisers (ORA) advise in order to stimulate orders in the direct trade. This could include the written recording of orders and intermediation in case of complaints and/or claims. ORA can also draft contracts at the request of the grower and the buyer or we advise in case of agreements that they prepare themselves.
How do you handle the information from the contracts?
Walter / Eline: It goes without saying that we handle this in a highly confidential manner and that information is only shared with the parties concerned. This information is not available to other parties.
What tip would you give growers / buyers (to work via Floriday)?
Walter / Eline: Make sure that the arrangements are entered properly into Floriday so that misunderstandings afterwards are avoided. In case of slightly more complicated orders, use the option of adding a PDF form (agreement) to Floriday. ORA can prepare this form for growers and buyers or we can advise if you want to do it yourself.
How can growers / buyers contact ORA?
Walter / Eline: Via the easy email address email@example.com.
