Rosa Flora Limited is C-TPAT certified.

Rosa Flora’s commitment to quality includes well trained specialized growers for each crop.
Their setup allow them to thoroughly review each variety prior to introducing it to the market; thereby ensuring they grow only the best varieties. Because Rosa Flora controls the product from planting to delivery, they are able to manage and minimize the time order of cut flowers spends at our facility
Rosa Flora Limited grows alstroemeria, snapdragons, standard and mini gerbera, sweetheart roses, and stephanotis in their own greenhouses. Besides increasing automatization in the process of growing and cutting flowers, Rosa Flora also pays significant attention to energy efficiencies by implementing the latest green technologies. By switching from natural gas boilers to carbon neutral biomass-fueled boilers, the net carbon dioxide produced is minimized. Other alternative sources of electricity include a co-generation system and wind turbine, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.
Next time you decided to order gerberas, snapdragon or alstroemeria, make sure you will ask for Rosa Flora Limited product.
