VeriFlora Certifies South American Cut Flower Growers

Greenhouse growers of all sizes and even products have earned sustainability certification under the VeriFlora label this year. Add four prominent cut flower growers in Ecuador to the list of those who’ve earned certification after meeting the requirements of Scientific Certification Systems.

The four cut flower growers, all of whom serve the North American market, are Valleflor, Sande Ecuador, SunRite Farms and Flower Village.

Valleflor produces summer varieties like phlox, limonium and bouvardia; Sande Ecuador breeds and produces zantedeschia; SunRite Farms is a large producer of greenhouse roses; and Flower Village grows over 38 acres of roses, limonium, statice and eringium.

“Cut flower farms in South America are leading the way in VeriFlora sustainability practices and setting important examples for others to follow,” says Roberto Boada, lead auditor for the Andean Sustainable Agriculture Certification Services Foundation, which is the first independent South American organization authorized to conduct VeriFlora certification audits.
