Italian company F.lli Barile spa has been awarded the Fairtrade certification.
"Many times," says the company's CEO Nino Barile, "during the long trips I take to select the best products in the world, unfortunately, I observe men and women living in difficult conditions and working without being able to feed their families ".
For this reason, in addition to the quality checks required to the intercontinental flower producers, the Barile team demands respect of employees and the payment of fair compensation.
"For over 30 years we have guaranteed and demanded the most respect for our producers and their employees, receiving in return the best product available on the market", Nino adds. "We stand shoulder to shoulder with those who, like us, have always defended the cause of Fairtrade".
One of the characteristics of Fairtrade adopted by Barile Flowers Service is the so-called "short supply chain", a short commercial production cycle, that consists for them in: production -> transport from all over the world to Europe -> sorting in the Netherlands -> arrival at the wholesaler partner of Barile Flowers Service.
Therefore, the product is traceable and the producer of the cut flowers in the packaging is recognisable.
