Coloríginz growers import international national roses greens plants

A new name with years of experience

Coloríginz - a new name for three disciplines with one central idea. At Rosa Link, Green Connect and OZ Import, we each have our own specialist area, but together we stand for the concept: ‘Our originality makes life special’.

Through our excellent cooperation with growers and customers worldwide, we know how to be different. More original. More striking. More efficient. The people, their experience and the way of working bring everyone together. And this gives the platform we offer an increasingly important role for ambitious growers and buyers who want to buy at source. For example, the supply of exotic and summer flowers, roses and decorative greens from our growers gains added strength and customers can take delivery sooner and sooner, with listing of source for traceability.

Sustainability and social responsibility are also becoming increasingly important in our production and logistics processes. We consciously produce in countries with a great deal of natural light to avoid using energy for artificial lights. We deliver directly from source to the customer to avoid unnecessary transport. And we look for healthy working conditions at our growers.

So Coloríginz is providing growing added value for everyone.

It is not just the technology and the easier way of working together that give Coloríginz its strong position. We can build on the history of our business units. Our past will determine our success today and tomorrow.

Coloríginz is highly sustainable

The Coloríginz team ensures that our growers and transporters operate with sustainable business management. And, of course, we do too. Not just because we want to, but because we know we must. Ecological and social responsibility. With better working conditions, minimal use of agrochemicals, lower CO2 emissions and complete transparency in everything we do.

Along with our collaboration with FSI 2020, we have a sustainable view of our people. This ensures a healthy and pleasant working environment. It also means we are a certified learning company for young talent.

With our many certifications, we also have the duty of transparency in many areas. Our customers can always find the origin of each delivery. They can  know all there is to know about our sustainability certificates, product specifications and means of transport.

All this is part of our active policy for a sustainable production chain and lasting relationships with growers, suppliers and customers.
