Air France KLM Martinair Cargo will attend Proflora 2019 in Bogotá, Colombia from 2 to 4 October. They will use the opportunity to announce that the company's flower flow out of Colombia is now FlowerWatch approved. The degree-hour controlled shipping method has been specially designed to handle delicate flowers.
After the launch of the first FlowerWatch certification in Kenya last June 2019, the company has continued to extend the programme to other flower markets.
Mr. Eric Mauroux, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo’s Global Head of Perishables Logistics explains: “By implementing the FlowerWatch quality insurance system in the main flower markets, we are not only improving the quality and vase life of fresh-cut flowers but also fostering vertical collaboration amongst all stake holders in the supply chain. We are the first airline to gain the certification, making it a reaffirmation of our commitment to the flower industry”.
