Production process

From small plant to rosebush

A plant remains about 8 years at Marjoland. For that reason, inspection and nurturing is of crucial important for good quality. A lot of attention is paid to this.

Various growing specialists are working round the clock to optimize the climate for the plants. The CO2 level, light and temperature can be controlled for each greenhouse, so that the plant feels great at all times.

Rose from the greenhouse to transport

Twice a day, the roses are clipped at Marjoland to be able to sort them on ripeness as good as possible. Subsequently, the roses are cooled to 4 degrees, to take the speed out of the growth process. Each rose is inspected manually, after which the sorting machine sorts them by length, thickness and ripeness.

Subsequently they are sleeved and put on water. When lengths vary, a carton collar is used to protect the roses as good as possible before they proceed to transport.

History

Since he was a young kid, Joop van den Nouweland knew that he wanted to build his own company. His father was a great example. Koos van den Nouweland had a 1.6-hectare cucumber plantation in Leidschendam. When he was four years old, Joop joined his father to work every single day. This taught him the practice of what it means to be a grower. The profession runs through his veins and in his heart.

In 1978 Joop started his own business. “I had 14.00 square meters of glass placed. A significant corner back then.” In his first backyard in Bleiswijk, he grew cucumbers for the first seven years. In 1985 he switched to roses. “You can use love and knowledge to improve your rose, until they stand out between those of other growers”.

In 1989 Joop and Mariola acquired the market garden of their neighbors. And they doubled again in 1997, when Van den Nouweland expanded with a 3.4-hectare greenhouse at the Abraham Kroesweg in Waddinxveen.

Marjoland was established early 2000, when a new branch was built at the Bredeweg in Waddinxveen. In 2005 Marjoland 2 was built with a 2.7 hectares mobile growing system. The same year, Marjoland acquired the adjacent 4.8-hectare company.

2007-2008 was a time of opportunism and upscaling. The van den Nouweland family wanted to focus on one site. The company in Bleiswijk and one department in Waddinxveen were sold and various companies were acquired. This is how one, spacious plot of 20 hectares was created. 0.8 hectare of this is above the central sorting and packing area.
