Innovation and new opportunities in horticulture

Horticulture is a capital-intensive and technologically advanced sector. When considering investments, the financial and social returns have to be weighed. The sector is constantly evolving, with new energy sources like geothermal energy,  innovative cultivation methods, globalisation, alternative forms of financing, and collaboration with sales and operational management.

Flynth would be happy to advise you about the points to consider in your field, such as:

  • energy and innovations
  • financing, liquidity and subsidies
  • strategy preparation
  • tax matters
  • partnerships
  • globalisation
  • personnel matters and HRM
  • The greenhouse as energy producer

The reduction of fossil fuel use is an important topic. Greenhouses are changing from energy consumers to energy producers. Are you also interested in installing geothermal energy, Next Generation Cultivation, bio-co-generators, wind or solar energy? We would be happy to support you through this transition by:

  • conducting feasibility studies
  • supervising collective projects
  • fiscal-legal and subsidy advice
  • preparing business plans and financing applications
  • Improved market and chain position

In the horticulture sector, large quantities of products are traded every day. The price-setting is subject to relatively strong fluctuations. By improving your market and chain position - perhaps in partnership - you gain more control over your selling prices. Entrepreneurs and partnerships, like growers' associations and cooperatives, can come to us with all their financial, strategic and fiscal-legal questions.

Challenge: controlling the cost price and keeping finances in order

Are you looking for advice about controlling the cost price better? We support growers in setting up a cost price calculation system. The input from FlynthVision - the tool for effective cash flow and returns prognosis and monitoring – offers you more insight into the financial flows within your glasshouse horticultural company. The preparation of annual accounts and fiscal declarations is specialist work for horticultural entrepreneurs, and Flynth would be happy to support you with it.

From payroll tax to personnel management

Our human human resource advisors have wide-ranging expertise in e.g. collective labour agreement issues, dismissal law, seasonal work, working with freelancers or temping agencies, plus we have been active for many years in the Healthy Policy network of HR managers in the horticultural sector. With our interactive and online package Loket.nl, we offer you a professional and affordable solution for your payroll administration. 


Horticulture is a dynamic and internationally oriented sector. Are you already marketing abroad or considering initiating activities abroad, whether as a collaboration or independently? We offer you our expertise and network to evaluate the feasibility of your international aspirations and help you to navigate the complex legislation involved with doing business internationally. We can also outline the relevant national and European subsidies and assist you with any subsidy applications.
