Beekenkamp Plants introduces sustainable 60-hole BKX-tray

Sustainability is important to Beekenkamp Plants. This week, the first 60-hole BKX trays for cutting raised products leave the company. These trays are the company's response to customers' growing need to transform into a more sustainable cultivation process. Beekenkamp Plants switches from a single-use plastic tray to the reusable BKX tray: a reusable tray that was developed in cooperation with Beekenkamp Verpakkingen.

In 2019, Beekenkamp Plants launched the BKX tray for seed-raised products. After the positive trials with this tray, thorough research was done into additional BKX-trays to deliver cutting-raised products. The 60-hole BKXtray is now the first to be commercialized.

The idea behind the cutting raised BKX-tray is the same as for the BKX-tray for seed products: the trays can be reused and therefore make a positive contribution to a better environment. Each tray has a unique RFID-tag, so Beekenkamp Plants can trace exactly what tray was sent to which customer. This way, the company can monitor the return of all trays, ensuring a more sustainable growing process for both the grower and the entire chain. From this week onwards, the 60-hole BKX-tray will be used for the outdoor Begonias, Helianthus and Pericallis.

The main advantages of the BKX plug tray are:

• Extremely suitable for automatic potting
• Longer life span
• Perfect pull-out capability
• Reduce environmental impact
• Proven advantage of BKX-tray

Beekenkamp Plants will continue on the path of sustainability. After the 60-hole BKX tray, the 84-hole, as well as the 128-hole BKX-tray, will also be added to the range. These trays are being developed for cutting raised products and various seed products including Cyclamen. Tests with these new trays will be carried out in early 2022.
