Express delivery, direct from the fields of our growers to our customers. No extra steps, no unnecessary stops. All of the freshness.
Our local experts know the best growers, and visit the fields on a regular basis. Buy fresh from source with total confidence in quality and volume.
Our flowers have fewer miles to travel, fewer days to be kept cold. The result: higher quality, lower costs, and good news for our planet.
Our unique field-to-shop concept
Buying “fresh from source” means you get to skip all the costly, time consuming steps. Instead of gathering flowers in a cooled central warehouse, auctioning them off, and finally transporting them to their final destination, we keep it smart (and simple). We ship directly to you.
You can buy directly from the fields of growers worldwide. Our local team does regular inspections and checks quality and volumes on your behalf.
After harvest we arrange immediate transport, using modern shipping methods, directly to the destination you specify.
You get the freshest flowers, without any unnecessary (and expensive) steps, direct from field to shop.
The best flowers from around the world, shipped fresh from source with maximum effect and zero fuss.
At Fresh From Source we feel a strong obligation towards future generations to do things better. We believe the global flower trade can improve in many ways, and that there is no time to waste doing so. We’ve started by investing in the local communities growing our products, optimising transport methods in order to reduce emissions and waste, and publishing an annual report about sustainability at Fresh From Source.
Happy to meet you! Here at Fresh From Source, we’re ready to help you find the world’s freshest flowers, without the fuss.
