Pioneers & gamechangers

THE BOOK

“When you always deliver work at a leading level, you sometimes don’t see how exceptional that actually is. Now is the time to let the world see what major impact we have had on floriculture with our products, brands and incomparable strength. Our new motto: Stay critical and modest but talk about what you’ve achieved much more often. Join the debate and take the people into the future. And show how visionary we are by nature.”

“This book is a carefully composed time recording telling the story of MNP / Suntory and how we want to take you into the future of floriculture! Our ‘story brand book’ is for everyone within the ornamental plant sector who wants to take notice of our company and our market approach. In addition, it is a detailed manual for all creative professionals who want to integrate our corporate branding into their designs.”
