History

Chrysal originates in The Netherlands, the worlds leading country in floricultural industries. Our company started in 1929, at first focused on Pokon plant food.

In the early fifties the company added flower food to the product range by importing Chrysal products from Belgium. A few years later, Pokon & Chrysal merged into one company.

Since then, we have come a long way. Chrysal has many years of global experience in the floricultural industry and we have proven ourselves to be the trendsetter in flower care.

Our supply chain management approach has improved worldwide trade and is the key to high quality bouquets and satisfied consumers. Our vase life guarantee concept has been introduced by many retailers and high quality florist chains.

In 2007 Pokon & Chrysal joined forces with the Swedish company Vitabric. Vitabric was one of Europe’s prominent producers of flower food, well known from their innovation of a slow-release flower care patch.

With Pokon & Chrysal’s global presence and strong technology base, combined with Vitabric’s long innovation track record, the company strengthened its position in order to to meet the increasing customer demand for quality, customer support and innovation in the flower business.
In 2007 the Pokon plant food activities were sold to a Dutch investment company.

In doing so, our official name changed to Chrysal International B.V. Our head office is located in Naarden, The Netherlands. We have offices in Europe, the United States, Colombia and Asia and our products are available in over 60 countries.
