History

It all started more than 75 years ago, in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands’ flower capital. Back then, old newspapers were used as packaging to protect plants and flowers against frost!

Since then, Van Dillewijn Group has evolved into an international company, with branches in a number of countries. The core business of Dillewijn Zwapak and its sister companies Dilpack Kenya and Dilpack South Africa is developing, producing and distributing packaging materials for flowers and plants. Vaselife International is an innovative company that develops and produces high-quality foods that cover a flower’s entire bloom and growth cycle.

To this day, Van Dillewijn Group’s head office remains in Aalsmeer, in the Netherlands. All the Van Dillewijn companies are managed from here, to ensure that our customers, growers, exporters, wholesalers and retail chains right around the world receive a service that is second to none.
