OUR SUPPLIERS Our growers Due to the astronomical rise in gas prices and other production cost increases, 2022 was a difficult year for many of our growers. In several markets, such as the Phalaenopsis product category, production was consistently down. We are developing an increasingly close partnership with our top 100 strategic growers. In 2022, we organised dream sessions, during which we looked ahead to 2030, as well as sessions on sustainability themes and retail visits to the UK.
