The sustainable mission of Bredefleur
Bredefleur is sustainable: Being responsible for the preservation of people and nature is the basis for growth!
The lily cultivation of Bredefleur is completely organic. No pesticides are used; pest and disease control is done in a biological way with natural enemies like ichneumon wasps. In addition, the soil is not depleted by the re-use of water, which already consists of 100% collected rainwater. The next challenge is to reduce gas consumption, where we are already well below average, but there is certainly still ground to be gained.
A lot of attention for employees
According to Peter Evers of Personnel & Organisation, one of the owners, this is a conscious choice. He wants to build up a lasting relationship with his people. "What you sow, you will reap, my grandfather always said. And he was right. You build together. You give something and you receive something, and the knife cuts both ways. That's why our company strives for intensive cooperation in the long term and why employees are offered a sustainable support programme that gives them the space to develop and grow."
