Tutorial video Floridata Portal
The tutorial video gives you an idea of the Sustainable Sourcing Scan in the Floridata Portal (duration: 3:48min, spoken in English with Dutch subtitles).
Frequently Asked Questions about the SSS are included in the FAQ.
How to get started?
For the SSS, a CSV file is required to check the purchasing data on the issued certificates. These required certificates are always linked to the ‘FSI2025 Basket of Standards’. Submitting a correctly completed CSV file ensures that this check takes place automatically. This makes it possible to see the results in the Floridata Portal and to obtain a validated ‘Proof of Sustainable Purchase’ (PoSP).
In 3 easy steps you will be informed of your sustainable purchasing!
How are these results generated?
In the output the percentages of the purchased volume are split into four categories:
|Category||Explanation||In MS Excel|
|Certified-responsible source||certificates of the grower comply with the FSI2025 Basket of Standards||sustainable|
|Certified||certificates of the grower do not comply with the FSI2025 Basket of Standards||not sustainable|
|Not certified||the grower does not have any valid certificates||not sustainable|
|Unidentified||the VerkoperGLN, RFH or Plantion number of the grower is not known to Floricode||not sustainable|
Based on the received purchase data, the tool calculates the share of each of the four above-mentioned categories
These data are processed according to the sustainability demands of the FSI Basket of Standards. This means that your purchase data is validated with
the register of certificates of Floricode and the country of production (ISO-country codes). Floricode is the owner of the register of certificates and updates this weekly.
The following checks are carried out:
Unidentified or not certified?Check 2
High-risk country?Check 3
certified-responsible source or certified?
When the grower is unknown, the corresponding volume is defined as unidentified. Is the grower known at Floricode, but not included in the register of certificates? The grower will be found in the category of not certified.
- High-risk country?:
- Not a high-risk country?:
Yes, three certificates are necessary: 1) GAP-certificate, 2) Environmental–Record Keeping certificate and 3) social certificate.
The grower can receive these certificates separately or combined. Two examples of the combined certificates are Florverde Sustainable Flowers Standard and
Kenya Flower Council Silver Standard. For more information of the certificates, please check the FSI2025 Basket of Standards.
Only the GAP-certificate and the Environmental-Record Keeping certificate are required.
