In Uganda, our cuttings production takes place at Xclusive Cuttings. Floritec is a shareholder of this production location. The best cuttings are picked and selected here on a daily basis. Quality control already takes place during the picking process and also afterwards.

One of Floritec's core values is responsible and respectful (towards people and the earth). This is well reflected in the production of cuttings at Xclusive Cuttings in Uganda. This is done in an extremely sustainable way. We map the consumption of materials and energy through various processes. In addition, we treat the local people with great respect.
We attach great importance to safe working conditions and continuously improve the living conditions for our employees. Such as good housing, childcare and good health care. We have our own medical clinic, for example.
Sustainability is of paramount importance at XClusive Cuttings.
Our mother plants are on substrate. The advantages of this are:
- Substrate (plume stone) is easy to disinfect by means of steaming.
- Steaming has been proven to be better than other sanitizing methods
- Lower environmental impact
- Providing purified water and nutrients in a more customized way.
Xclusive has switched from classic bulb lamps via Energysavers to LED lighting. As a result, energy consumption has been drastically reduced. From 100 watts to 34 watts to 11 watts. The lighting surface per lamp has increased from 10m2 to 16m2. A total energy saving of 80%!
