The Ecuadorian florist BellaRosa received the silver medal in the “Cut Flowers” category in the eleventh edition of the AIPH International Producer contest of 2020 organized by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (Aiph), this Tuesday, January 28 .
This is the first time that an Ecuadorian firm ranks among the ten finalists of this contest and manages to get second place. In this competition, the Aiph seeks to recognize the best practices in horticultural production by nurseries of ornamental production throughout the world.
The company stressed that this achievement was possible thanks to the commitment they have to help the environment with projects such as carbon monoxide reduction by replacing tractors with electric cable cars for the transport of flowers .
In addition, it has the program of integral health and occupational safety that makes available to workers a fully equipped lactarium for the storage of breastfeeding mothers’ milk and medical attention during working hours available to the 600 employees.
