Royal FloraHolland announces 2024 rates for non-members

As a supplier (non-member) on the Royal FloraHolland platform, they have shared info for stakeholders on the new rates for 2024 and the main changes.

Major cost increases
Royal FloraHolland's costs, like many other companies, have increased rapidly in the past two years. With inflation, collective bargaining agreements, and higher energy bills being the main causes. Obviously, this will affect our rates in 2024. We continuously aim to save on costs and avoid cost increases. Therefore, we have been implementing specific large-scale measures in our organization for some time now with a view to controlling costs. Implementing them will take time.

Here, you can find all the 2024 rates by sales method and volume benefits applicable to members in the various member packs.
