On Tuesday 9 July, the Feel Green Days of the growers cooperation Decorum began. Decorum thanks buyers of Feel Green plants with a special box of green apples. Feel Green is Decorum's sustainability brand and the present fits in well with that. By doing so, Decorum not only wants to draw attention to its sustainable brand, but also to discuss the latest developments on this theme with its customers. "You notice that sustainability is becoming more and more topical, for everyone in the chain. With Feel Green, Decorum has an answer to the high demands of various (end) customers. Our Feel Green range is growing and the growers are fully certified. That fits well with certain customers," says Stef de Jong, account manager at Decorum.
All Feel Green products are delivered in a cardboard tray or a tray made of recycled material. The packaging and label are also made of biodegradable or renewable materials and the amount of plastic is minimized. Moreover, the products sold under Feel Green comply with the GAP, SQ and Productproof certificates. The certificates make it clear that strict requirements are met with regard to product traceability, hygiene, social aspects and the correct (biological) crop protection.
