After the successful MPS certifications for the Southern mother plant production sites Selecta Kenya and Wagagai with MPS A, MPS GAP and Socially Qualified, Selecta Canarias on Tenerife now received MPS GAP.
A certification with MPS GAP means that all products are safe, sustainably cultivated, high quality and easily traceable products. MPS-GAP certificate requires documentation of which crop protection is used and in which amount and how you work with the crop.
Otto Deient, General Manager at Selecta Canarias, appreciates the work of his staff: “I would like to say thanks to the team of Selecta Canarias for achieving this very important goal together, also thanks to the people who sent me the necessary information and documents which have been asked for to get the certification.”
Selecta Canarias has been founded in 1986 for the production of Pelargonium. After reconstructions in 2009, the production site is now used for critical crops like Solanaceae (Calibrachoa, Petunia) and for keeping the elite clean. From all Southern sites Selecta Canarias holds the highest hygiene standards and has been NAKT Elite certified since 2011. The production site covers an area of 32,000 m; 25,000 m² are used for productions of cuttings and 7,000 m² are used for the elite material. During the peak season 180 employees work at Selecta Canarias and up to 3,000,000 cuttings are produced per week.
