Delivery at any time and payment security with mutual transactions
You want to be able to deliver what your customers request. This occasionally means that you have to buy products from fellow growers. With the Grower-to-grower scheme, Royal FloraHolland facilitates mutual transactions between growers. It makes supplying between growers easy and cheap. This means you will always be able to meet your customers' demands plus you are assured of a quick, efficient and precise handling of mutual transactions, without duplicate commissions being charged.
You will find the rates for this services under 'Other supply rates', on the page: Rates for members and suppliers.
You can simply buy additional products from all suppliers of Royal FloraHolland, both members and non-members. For other growers the Grower-to-grower scheme lowers the threshold for selling to you because of the financial security and ease of selling and settling via Royal FloraHolland. You do not pay any additional commissions, and you can have your purchase settled weekly with your sales revenue. With Statement online you know quickly what your purchases are at any time.
For the growers supplying products, a transaction via this purchase scheme is a normal transaction. They only have to send in an electronic delivery form (EDF). The settlement runs through the usual process for direct sales. The supplying grower can check the transactions as usual via the product statement and is assured of rapid payment without additional administration or collection charges. With the Grower-to-grower scheme there is less discussion with fellow growers about deviating delivery conditions.
For transactions via the Grower-to-grower scheme, both the purchasing and the supplying growers directly settle packaging and auction trolleys. They can also manage the balance of CC-containers.
