With the new season on the horizon, Modiform is publishing the digital catalogue for 2021-2022. The Leusden-based company prioritizes maximum preservation of raw materials, which is why closing the material loop is also an important focal point when compiling the product range. The catalogue includes products that contribute to this, to ensure that it goes without saying that every choice is a sustainable one. Many of the products have been awarded the cyclos certificate, which means that an independent body has incontestably proved that the products are recyclable.
Recyclable pots and trays made from recyclable materials represent an important part of Modiform’s product range. For example, the recycled and recyclable (R&R) pots are the new standard. Each transport tray represents a sustainable choice because these are always produced using 100% recycled polystyrene (PS). Modiform’s return system ensures that these trays are recycled and converted into beautiful new products.
Biodegradable and compostable
The ecoExpert products are made from 100% recycled cardboard from FSC-certified sources. Above all, the range of pots, trays, carry packs, and punnets that recently received cyclos certification are biodegradable and compostable. The products are strong and – thanks to the addition of an organic, biodegradable wax – waterproof. Growers can use the ecoExpert trays for plants that are traded at auction.
Propagation: tried-and-tested product further improved
Modiform’s first multi trays date as far back as 1988 and are still in use. The strong and flat edge ensures excellent loading at the nursery. These multi trays can be made with a thicker film to provide a longer product life. For the paper plugs, Modiform focuses on unique designs to ensure that good air circulation around the plug as well as the cup drainage is further optimised and that optimal root growth is promoted.
Sustainable business opportunities
John van der Maarel, Sales Director at Modiform, says, ‘We want to do everything to promote sustainability. This is only possible if the purchasers of our products can also choose products that add value for them in addition to being able to choose sustainability. With the new and innovative products we present in the new catalogue, that is definitely the case.’ You can find the digital, clickable catalogue here.
