Penta Flowers has been exporting intermediate roses into the European market for 10 years now. It grows its flowers under 60 hectares of greenhouses and exports them directly to supermarkets and wholesalers in Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia and Holland.

Being very conscious of the environmental and social issues that surround farming, Penta is proud of its status as an ‘MPS A grower’ and is also listed as being ‘MPS socially qualified’. It sells its products under the Swiss fair trade label “Max Havelaar” in Swiss supermarkets and is in the process of being certified for MPS Gap as well as the German Fair Trade label ‘TransFair’.
