On 15 June 1900, a number of farmers and horticulture growers decide to join forces.
The cooperative association begins its operations in an auction hall in Brussels under the name Hallen der Voortbrengers (halls of growers). This is the predecessor to the current Euroveiling. Initially, half the members of the management council are grape growers and the other half are flower growers. In 1967 the cooperative moves to its current location in the Brussels’ municipality of Neder- Over- Heembeek.
These days, the Euroveiling only consists of plant and flower growers.
Since business continues to expand beyond Belgium, the company changes its name to Euroveiling in 1987. During the years that follow, the auction expands and specialises in the trade of flowers and plants. The company offers excellent services to growers and buyers, while charging only minimum commissions. As the only ornamental plant and flower auction in the country, Euroveiling is the main driving force behind the Belgian ornamental horticulture market.
In order to provide buyers and growers even better service, we are continually thinking about how we can improve the auction’s structure and auction process. In 2009 we invested in a brand-new buyer’s tribune to give buyers more options while improving the continuity of the selling process.
This positive desire to continually evolve ensures that Euroveiling will continue to remain a modern and competitive auction.
Euroveiling is the channel of choice for the direct sales of flowers and plants.
