28 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

For almost 30 years we have been working on the development of fresh packaging for sending flowers. It is our goal to maintain the value of flowers and bouquets even during a journey lasting several days. As a family company that has been producing in Germany since the beginning, we attach great importance to quality. That is why we are continuously working on improving our products in order to guarantee you a flower delivery with the least possible loss of quality. For some years now, ROTARIS has also been intensively concerned with the topic of sustainability, with the intention of adapting the FRESHBAG® better to your customer needs and contributing to climate protection.
