The past year started on a high note for Royal Lemkes when we won the prestigious Horticulture Entrepreneur Award. This accolade recognised our work and philosophy and served as an additional incentive for us to continue to develop and improve. In 2018, we therefore invested heavily in our employees and in the company to help achieve our mission: the sustainable growth of our people, our relationships, our common business and the world we live in. We are delighted to present our annual report for 2018.
From supplier to service partner
The journey to a sustainable, profitable plants category can only be made together. Last year, we developed sustainable concepts, brands and shelf plans in close partnership with our retailers based on data analyses, legislation and consumer trends. And always aimed at the relevant target group.
Founded in 2018, Green Sparkle, our parent organisation, is an incubator for sustainable entrepreneurs and creative minds.
We expect a slight growth in revenue in 2019, but we are however concerned about cost evolution regarding labour, transport, raw materials and the like. Nevertheless, will continue to invest in our people, in sustainability and in IT – but above all in our business relationships. Our theme for the year, after all, is ’Growing Together’.
On behalf of the 200 plant professionals at Royal Lemkes, we wish you happy reading. Thank you for your valued cooperation throughout 2018.
