Production Process


As an ever expanding and developing business AAA constantly strives to be the best it can be and understands that growing is an art. As such, focus is on every single aspect of the business - starting from the variety selection, to growing, post-harvest treatment, sales and the after sales service.

Growing & harvesting

The company’s highly skilled and professional team have established a modern and efficient crop management system and first-class controls within both the fields and the grading hall. Each of the farms have a bespoke packhouse on site, so the flowers are picked and packed on the same location, with minimal transit between the fields and packhouse. Roses are harvested two to three times a day to ensure the optimum quality and cut stage of each stem. Roses are immediately transported into the grading hall in buckets with post-harvest solution where they are cooled for a minimum of 4-6 hours and then processed and cooled again before despatch.

Packing & grading

Immediately after arrival to the grading hall all flowers are inspected by the intake quality controllers. After a minimum of 4-6 hours of pre-cooling each single stem is sized, defoliated, graded and checked in different parameters i.e. cut stage, shape, colour, size, damages if any, strength, straightness of the stem and bud size. Bunches are then packed in line with our customer specifications. We use the finest quality packaging materials to ensure the flowers arrive in the best possible condition to the final customer.
