Owned by a Swiss-American family, BELLAFLOR GROUP ECUADOR consists of several plantations located, near Quito in the Ecuadorian Andes. In state of the art facilities we grow the largest selection of high-end cut-flowers. In our trial areas we search continuously for new improved varieties.
Bellaflor Group is committed to the well-being of our employees, the local community and to maintaining high environmental standards. Since 2008, the Bellaflor Group has been certified by Rainforest Alliance.
All of Bellaflor’s 300 plus employees are provided free of charge, transportation to and from work, a warm homemade lunch, uniforms, safety training and on-site medical care for themselves and their families. We strive to go above and beyond local laws and restrictions regarding working hours, conditions and labor rights, promoting success not only on the job but at home as well. Under no circumstances do we employ minors. We also have a strict anti-discrimination policy ensuring equal rights and opportunities for all.
Environmentally, we have installed comprehensive irrigation and water catchment systems to limit our water usage and our impact on local resources. We have also implemented a recycling and composting program to limit our external waste. In addition, we have several areas throughout our farm in which biological controls and other forms of integrated pest management are under use in lieu of chemical pesticides. In doing so, we ensure not only the success and well-being of our company but the success and well-being of our employees, the environment and the local community.
In line with our commitment to environment as well as fair labor standards, we are proud to say we are certified by Rain Forest Alliance.
