The young plant producer joined the scheme in April 2015 and within six months had gained certification ahead of their peak season.
Production manager Francis Mizuro said: "This ensures our products are formally recognised for their high quality standard and that we as a company conduct our operations to the highest of standards and with corporate, ethical and social responsibility at all times."
Delamore Young Plants were given support from the BOPP scheme manager, Anna Cook, via workshops for the production team, administrational support and generally on hand to answer specific technical questions as they arose.
She said: "We’re pleased to welcome Delamore Young Plants as a newly certificated business to the scheme. The team was dedicated to achieving certification within six months, and we were happy to provide support to assist them with achieving their goal. The BOPP Standards set robust and stringent requirements to ensure all our members are able to deliver their customer expectations, whilst meeting legal and best practice standards. On behalf of the HTA and BOPP we’d like to congratulate the Delamore Young Plants team."
Meanwhile, Delamore field sales and key account manager Colin Robinson has left. Robinson had a similar role for Volmary before Volmary took over Delamore in 2015.
Eady said: "We decided to take the opportunity to flatten the sales management structure. Chris Finlay has assumed the responsibilities of Colin and each of the five field sales managers and four office-based sales team now report directly to Chris. We feel this will offer the sales team a faster and more responsive service from the central sales office. At the same time we recruited Pete Gilman as our new manager in the South. Pete was formerly area manager for Syngenta and suggested Delamore offered him the opportunity to develop himself personally with a smaller, UK based family business. Pete knows the area very well and his first couple of months have been very encouraging."
