Svensson client wins Green Entrepreneur of the Year award

Svensson congratulates our client, Knud Jepsen, on winning the first edition of Green Entrepreneur of the Year. 190 people attended the event which took place in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands.

Frands Jepsen, owner of the company Knud Jepsen A/S in Denmark, was awarded the title of ‘Green Entrepreneur of the Year 2015’, last week at the first edition of the Green Inspiration Event ‘Pot and Bedding Plant Industry’ held in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands. The jury of six members searched for the best pot and/or bedding plant grower in the world and found Jepsen the winner. Five of the six jury members chose him as the most inspiring entrepreneur in the international pot and bedding plant industry and praised Jepsen’s clear vision, mission and ambitions.

“Professional marketing with a clear branding strategy under the Queen umbrella. A focus on the customer is the guiding principle and is well implemented in the business processes. Jepsen always keeps the end customer in mind and furthermore a close collaboration with retailers guarantees a higher turnover thanks to the Queen concept”, were some of the opinions of the jury.

190 people attended the first edition of Green Inspiration Event ‘Pot and Bedding Plant Industry’. The new international event for the pot and bedding plant sector was organized by HortiBiz – part of KAS/TuinbouwCommunicatie - in collaboration with Fleuroselect. The event is targeting leading growers, suppliers, and people involved in research, advice and trade in the area of pot and bedding plants, from all over the world.

The Green Inspiration Event is supported by numerous leading organizations and companies from the ornamental plant sector. Svensson is proud to be one of these.
