Assortment and Import Management – 2017 in review
Visit in Israel
Uwe Bedenbecker (Managing Director of Veiling Rhein-Maas) and Guy Kosman (Area Manager Import) visited several suppliers, breeders and main exporters in Israel from 22 to 27 October in various locations ranging from Northern Israel to the western Negev Desert. At the same time, contact to several potential new suppliers has been established.
‘The visit in Israel showed once more the high quality of flowers, the excellent logistics in the warehouses and the high standard of professionalism of Israeli growers. We had the opportunity to discuss and share experiences, analyse market trends and developments with our suppliers and describe the quality requirements of Veiling Rhein-Maas at first hand’, says Uwe Bedenbecker.
From 3 to 14 December 2017, Hans Peter Riskes (Team Manager Assortment cut flowers) Jos van der Venne (Assortment Import) and Jac Vallen (Area Manager Import), visited various suppliers in Kenya and Ethiopia.
The aim of the trip was twofold: On one hand, current African rose suppliers of the auction were visited and the international market place Veiling Rhein-Maas was also presented to several potential rose suppliers. On the other hand, intensive training on cultivation, grading and packaging was provided by the employees of the auction, in order to increase suppliers’ sales and to improve customer satisfaction.
