FloraHolland verification for Floralife Express Clear 100 for Roses: Smithers-Oasis recently received verification for its Floralife Express Clear 100 for post-harvest rose care from FloraHolland. Floralife Express Clear 100 received FloraHolland verification after a stringent, four-phased, year-long testing procedure that began in early 2017.
FloraHolland Verification Process
“The process involved a precise temperature- and humidity-controlled testing procedure with Express Clear 100 and roses—including a one-day grower simulation, a four-day transportation simulation, a two-day retail simulation and, finally, the consumer vase-life simulation,” explained Jan Boers, research and development manager, Floralife Europe, who led the efforts for the verification. “We are excited that Floralife Express Clear 100 worked so well and for some varieties, surpassed the competition in the tests for average vase life after-treatment.”
