Bloomia gets certification by Fair Food Program

Always nice when a  flower farmer we know makes a shift that helps the world even more.

We are happy to report that Bloomia’s CEO, Werner Jansen, one of the nation’s sultans of tulips, a guy who brought innovative hydration techniques from his native Amsterdam to his new home in Virginia, is getting recognized for his impactful work.

Bloomia’s entire cut flower supply chain across all of Bloomia’s International growing operations – which encompasses farms in the U.S., Chile, and South Africa — will be certified by the Fair Food Program.

Not only that but the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Affairs is also applauding these efforts. They have given a $2.5 million grant to the Fair Food Standards Council to expand protections that will go to Werner’s farms as well as other worthy farms.

What great news. I first met Werner Jansen at the Certified American Grown event in Washington D.C. since he is also an advocate of having locally grown flowers at certain federal events like Memorial Day and July 4. He is someone who is a thoughtful listener and an innovator who cares about the growth of flowers and ideas that help mankind.
