Mother's Day in the UK

Sunday, March 14 was Mother's Day in the UK. We have been so busy, but also a lot of fun… Unbelievable what strength comes from working together. Cool to see how people take responsibility. Everyone who participated: (again) Thanks. The flowers of Vianen shine on many mothers in England. Here is a small impression of last week...

A Modern Approach for the Best Service

One of the pillars of our success is our modern approach, for example, we introduced a webshop in our very early years. In this way, customers can order whenever convenient. Besides the modern webshop, it is, of course, possible to order by phone, email or fax. Orders go through our automatic distribution system to the loading area, from which they proceed into the truck. Also during this last phase, final checks are made with scan and camera systems.

The Lowest Prices in the Market Place

Sustainability

We are well aware that this earth and hence nature is a precious gift to us and our (small) children! We are fully aware of the influence of our business activities on the environment and society and want to act in such a way that the natural environment is preserved for future generations.

Caring for Our Planet

Therefore, Vianen  Flowers believes that sustainable business is a must and constantly strives to minimize the negative impact on the environment. This enables us to continually integrate sustainability into our business processes, services, and products. We are providing a valuable product to our customers and while we acknowledge that the creation and the consumption of our product do have consequences for the environment and communities, we are looking at behaviors and technologies we can adopt and invest in reducing our negative impact.

 

 

We are focusing on reducing our energy consumption, by using as much LED lighting as possible in and around our 17.000 square meter facility. The lighting in our refrigerator rooms consists of LED lamps. Here’s a double-saving effect: LED lighting hardly generates heat, which means that cooling engines also consume less energy. The engines of our conveyor belts and sorting systems fall quickly into saving mode and start up quickly when capacity is needed. We also have movement detectors in many places in our building; That way our light sources are only active when needed. Our truck engines meet EURO6 emission standards and are equipped with a special feature that automatically stops the engine when loading and unloading.

Heat Cold Storage

Geothermal energy is used for heating and cooling our buildings. It is a sustainable solution that significantly reduces the consumption of fossil fuels. The heat produced by our refrigerator engines is used directly for the floor heating, excess heat is stored in the geothermal installation The beauty of this is: with this warm water, cooling is more efficient in winter. Our geothermal installation uses residue heat in a smart way, contributing to reduced CO2 emissions.
