Van der Plas Flowers and Plants will cooperate with the trade association Deutscher Floristen-GmbH (FDF). The employer and professional association FDF has long actively represented the interests of florists and employers in the German flower trade sector. As the needs of the professional florist are central to both parties, they are now joining forces to provide even better support to florists and member companies.

Expansion of existing cooperation
The decision by Van der Plas Flowers and Plants and FDF is the result of an already existing cooperation between Van der Plas Flowers and Plants and FDF’s regional branches. During this cooperation, it was evident that the core values of FDF and Van der Plas Flowers and Plants were a perfect match. Following this, both parties decided to expand the cooperation nationwide.
Quality supplier and partner
“For Van der Plas, the partnership is a great way to support the German florist as a quality supplier and as a partner,” says Jeroen Judels, commercial manager at Van der Plas Flowers and Plants. “That is why we offer FDF members exclusive offers on the full range of cut flowers, potted plants, and decorative materials in the Van der Plas webshop. Together, FDF and Van der Plas ensure that FDF members have all the resources they need to grow and prosper their businesses.”
Manfred Hoffmann, creative director at the trade association Deutscher Floristen e.V.-Bundesverband, added: “Van der Plas offers our industry a real purchasing alternative! All products relevant to trade are organized under one roof. Moreover, the webshop is extensive and clear, the logistics are excellently organized, and sustainability is of paramount importance. So, Van der Plas fits perfectly into our partner portfolio. We look forward to bringing this new partnership to life, inspiring the industry, and supporting our members.”
