Westeringh Flowers B.V.

‘In the quaint village of Varik in the Dutch province of Gelderland stands our modern greenhouse of 3.2 hectares in which we have been growing the beautiful Madiba for the last fifteen years. Together with Dekker Chrysanten, we built the brand and saw it grow internationally to retailers, wholesalers, and florists. We are incredibly proud of this achievement. If we are travelling outside the Netherlands and see a florist, we always quickly go inside to ask whether they have Madiba.

We are a family business and took over the business from Henk van de Westeringh in 2006. We are committed to sustainability: we are MPS certified and use natural pesticides. We don’t need to be the biggest, but we do want to be the best.

We believe in working together, as we do with Dekker Chrysanten, which is also a family business that holds on to its norms and values. We also enjoy working together with the other Madiba growers Kees de Jongh and Maurice van Tuijl, so that we can learn from each other and keep each other on track to deliver the best quality Madiba flowers every day.’
