About Arend Roses
Arend Roses has been a leading Dutch rose grower with an excellent reputation for many years now. In 1976 Nico van der Arend started as Rozenkwekerij Van der Arend in the town of Monster, South Holland, out of his pure love of roses. After four years, the company continued in Maasdijk.
Nowadays, Arend roses are grown on eleven hectares, spread between two locations in the Municipality of Westland. At Arend Roses, they combine the latest technologies with employees who truly appreciate roses. To create a perfect uniformity in terms of maturity of the bud, the roses are pruned twice a day, seven days a week. This is still traditionally done by hand. The roses are placed in water straight away and arrive in the cold storage room within half an hour.
In the processing area, specialist employees carry out quality control on each (!) rose. Only roses that meet the quality requirements set by Arend Roses are bunched by the bunching machines. The quality requirements are considerably higher than the requirements set by the flower auctions
