Find out how Syngenta teams nurture flowers from seed to market
Sustainable flowers, when and where you want them
Syngenta Flowers is our most colourful business. It’s also a very delicate operation as flowers can only be grown to meet demand – they can’t be stored or stockpiled.
We make sure our stunning, sustainably produced flowers are in the shops at the right time – like 500 million bright geraniums for sunny days and 20 million fair trade poinsettias for the turn of the year.
Syngenta is global leader in sustainable flower production, thanks to our expertise in advanced genetics and breeding. We serve professional growers, distributors and retailers with state-of-the-art seeds, young plants and cuttings, expert advice and training.
From one man to a responsible and sustainable global business
Our history started when a young man called Groot started breeding seeds in the Netherlands 140 years ago.
Since then, we have built a company that has won 35 international awards for new varieties and an enviable reputation for responsibility and sustainability.
We are accredited with Good Agricultural Practice (GLOBALG.A.P.) status, one of the world’s leading agricultural standards, for our care for the environment and the people who work with us.
Flowers and pot plants – and people’s tastes – are different around the world. Pelargoniums and viola are very popular in Europe and the US, where people also enjoy chrysanthemums and mandevilla.
Not only that, getting flowers and plants to the shops in 75 different countries means we need a global network of farms and distributors. So we have businesses serving different regions and different types of customer.
