At a time when sustainability and social corporate responsibility were not as widespread as they are today, Dutch Plantin took on the challenge: we analysed how a natural residual product – coconut husks – could be used as a raw material in cultivation. Meanwhile, our company has become a global pioneer in sustainable coco substrates for the cultivation of vegetables, fruit, flowers and plants.
Success through innovation
The drive to pioneer runs through our veins. We believe the best is never good enough… and sustainability can always use an extra boost. In the 1990s Dutch Plantin developed an innovative buffering process to extract sodium and potassium from coco and to insert calcium. Today, this buffering process has become the standard all over the world. But we don’t stand still… We continue to innovate to further improve our products. Meanwhile, our pioneering products have proven their stability.
THE BEST IS NEVER GOOD ENOUGH! LUCKILY, WE’RE PIONEERS BY NATURE.
We set high standards
We set high standards not only for ourselves, but also for our customers. It therefore comes as no surprise that Dutch Plantin is both a producer and a supplier, which is exceptional in the world of coco products. From the in-house production process to custom advice for our horticulturists: we manage the entire chain ourselves, from A to Z. The result? Full quality control and a reliable delivery. Not to mention, custom solutions for each crop.
Self-confident and driven
Day in, day out, we are driven to go the extra mile to guarantee top-quality products. Quick wins? Not our thing! We are not afraid to distinguish ourselves by only processing ‘aged’ coco in our growbags, blocks and briquettes. It may be more labour-intensive and time-consuming, but we consciously chose to adopt this production method. Why, you ask? Simply because it enables us to provide our customers with a guaranteed stable product for excellent crop growth, even long-term.
