Quality & Environment

At Double H, we take the time to constantly analyse feedback from our customers to determine future product development. A system of weekly forecasting ensures high levels of availability of plants in peak condition for our customers.

Every crop is tested in conditions that simulate transport, store and home environment, and the results used to adjust variety selection and growing techniques.

Sustainability

At Double H we are proud of our established strategic commitment to sustainability which spans all aspects of the company. We are always looking for new and innovative transformational changes towards more sustainable processes. Our aim is to challenge ourselves and learn how to act differently to forge sustainable paths for the future. We see sustainability as an opportunity to inspire change for the good and value this ethos.

Some examples of the way we strive for sustainability:

  • Preferred use of biological methods for crop protection against pest and disease, rather than conventional chemically based methods.
  • 95% of our heat use is generated from recycled wood rather than fossil fuels.
  • Separation and recycling of all waste (zero to land fill).
  • Sealed watering systems that eliminate waste of water and nutrients.
