|Klasmann-Deilmann is the leading corporate group in the international substrate industry, with sales and production companies in Europe, Asia and America. On every continent, our growing media provide a vital basis for the growth of fruit, vegetables, mushroom, ornamental plants, trees and shrubs. They help ensure the success of our partners and customers in the commercial horticulture sector. Our product portfolio includes substrates for professional growers based on white and black peat as well as the in-house manufactured constituents TerrAktiv® green compost and GreenFibre® wood fibre, amongst others. Moreover, the innovative Containermulch pot topping product is part of our range.
Our growing media can be supplied in 70L bags, 200L bales, IBC bags, Big/ Bales and loose bulk. We can supply mixes that are pure peat, peat reduced or peat free. Year in – year out, UK growers have experienced our consistent quality of products and service, irrespective of challenges due to peat harvests or other raw material supply issues. Our global network of technical advisors also extends to the UK and allows access to extensive crop and cultivation knowledge.
There are various benchmarks we use to gauge how seriously we take our responsibility for humankind, the environment and future generations. These include the monitoring of our raw materials and production processes by Regeling Handels Potgronden (RHP), the certification of our quality-management system to the ISO 9001 standard, our ISO 14001-compliant environmental-management system, the verification of our climate footprint to the ISO 14064 standard, and reporting in compliance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI Standards 2016). The chief restoration measure applied to former peat extraction areas is re-wetting.
The strategic focus of our company, a medium-sized family business, is extremely forward-looking. Keen to remain the most sustainable producer of growing media, we are working on far-reaching research projects to develop innovative raw materials, substrates and growing systems. In the renewable-energy and resources sector, too, we are single-mindedly pursuing a strategy of growth and are continuing to expand our service portfolio.
