23/01/2018 Ter Laak Orchids has been selected as International Grower of the Year 2018! During the IPM Essen, this prestigious award was presented by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH). And to top it off, we also took home the sustainability award. Eduard ter Laak enthused, "Every day we strive for top quality. That is why we invest continuously in technical innovations and the development of our product. Always in a sustainable way, because respect for people and their environment is in our nature. Together with our customers, suppliers and staff, we set the bar even higher. That explains why we invest in sustainable relationships as well as our product. It’s just fantastic that this is now rewarded with this distinction!"
In the past year, our new greenhouse in Guatemala was officially opened, and currently an energy-efficient DaylightGreenhouse (5 hectare) is being built in Wateringen. It’s a unique venture. Eduard added, "By collaborating with the right partners, we are able to carry this out. That has brought us to this international podium, which we are very proud of. So our grateful thanks go to our committed team, our loyal business relations, and of course the organisation of the National Horticultural Entrepreneur's Prize and Royal FloraHolland for the nomination. Thank you!!"
