100% Digital trading as a buyer

How does it work?

What’s the reason for 100% Digital?

All transactions at the Royal FloraHolland marketplace will be fully digital. This marks FloraHolland’s next step in the digital transformation of the floriculture industry. Digitisation increases the efficiency and speed of both supply and demand. In addition, it helps the sector to fully comply with the tightened financial legislation in Europe.

100% Digital deadline postponed
The deadline for 100% Digital of 31 March 2021 has been postponed. After consultation with parties in the sector, we at Royal FloraHolland have concluded that the speed at which we want to realise 100% Digital is excessively ambitious. We have also discovered that certain functionalities needed to be able to trade completely digitally are missing in Floriday. The need to further digitise does however remain and Floriday as a platform is widely supported by the sector. In order to fully support trade between growers and buyers through Floriday, a push back of the deadline is inevitable. In the coming weeks, we will discuss the follow-up approach for the roll-out of 100% Digital with various parties in the market. Based on these discussions, we will inform growers, buyers, agents and software suppliers by the end of March at the latest what this means in concrete terms. For the time being, there will be no changes to the leniency scheme and you can continue to trade as you are now.

For buyers, this means...

  • Direct trade flows will always be initiated by the buyer, based on the supply that a grower has made available online.
  • All agreements made by phone, Excel and WhatsApp must be recorded in Floriday and the order must also be placed there.
  • You can no longer phone up a grower to get him to enter an order. As a buyer you place an order based on the supply line of the grower.
  • Orders must be placed in FloraXchange, FloraMondo or directly in Floriday.
  • The direct VMP link between growers and buyers can no longer be used to settle via Royal FloraHolland.
  • All orders must be processed digitally. There will always be contact with the grower, as long as the order is placed digitally.
