Qualitree Canada joins MPS

Qualitree in Rosedale (BC) Canada has completed their initial year of participation in the MPS-ABC Environmental Certification Program and has now been awarded their first MPS-ABC score. The grower of Lavender, Calluna, Erica, Dianthus, Christmas programs, etc. is proud to be member of the global leading sustainability system for horticulture.

Tony van Oort states that the care for the planet should be measurable: “we believe as a team that we should be good stewards of what has been entrusted to our care. “Always do the right thing...”. This includes our stewardship towards the environment and we want to be held accountable for that. MPS provides the system of accountability and monitoring to ensure we walk the talk. We believe that in this global marketplace, aligning ourselves with an internationally recognized organization like MPS was the best choice.”


“We hope and expect from MPS that they make every effort to be the forefront / premiere brand name in certification. Also providing regular and relevant reporting on crop protection and other subjects back to us accurately”.

Full commitment

Arthij van der Veer is the responsible coordinator on behalf of MPS and has accompanied Qualitree during the certification process: "Since 2014 Qualitree has participated in MPS ABC and showed during this year full commitment to implement the requirements of MPS-ABC. During the initial audit for MPS-ABC and the certification audit Qualitree has shown that it meets all the prescribed criteria”.

Company Bio

From a university project in the early 1990’s with one small cold frame, to today with its modern European style facility with 12 acres of greenhouse space and 50 acres of outdoor production, one thing remains constant at Qualitree: Anything is possible with a great team. From propagation staff to receptionist they all are one team always searching for new and better ways to do things. “ We know and believe that if we stay focused on solutions for our customers that we will continue to form friendships and working relationships that last. Thank you MPS for giving us the tools to instill accountability and process into our care of our physical world”, concluded Tony van Oort.
