MPS will be present at Cultivate’16 from 9th to 12 July in Columbus, OH. USA. At their brand new company presentation, which is located at number #533, the eco label is happy to inform industry professionals about the latest national and international developments on sustainability and inform them on the benefits of the MPS-ABC Sustainability Scorecard.
North America is a growth market for MPS and growers have been helped to prepare themselves for a challenging future.
Sustainable entrepreneurship, product requirements (and certification), residue and requirements on retail level are all key words for the upcoming years. The MPS-ABC Sustainability Scorecard actual returns in a reduction of the use of crop protection agents, fertilizers, energy, water and waste.
During Cultivate’16 MPS will award the MPS-GAP and MPS-Socially Qualified certificate to Red Fox Dümmen El Salvador (part of DÜMMEN ORANGE) which, during the audit of 2016, obtained a 100% compliance on both certificates.
Another achievement is the selection of Battlefield Farms, MPS-A certified, from Orange-VA as a finalist of the Greenhouse Grower’s 2016 Operation of the Year award. Battlefield Farms, MPS-ABC participant since 2010, has shown that implementation of IPM techniques combined with technological improvements and an open mind in relation to use of crop protection agents will lead to actual reductions & returns.
