Accreditation Information

BOPP Accredidation

The British Ornamental Plant Producers (BOPP) set up an accreditation scheme in 1996 to establish a quality standard for wholesale bedding plant, hanging basket and planted container production, and Baginton Nurseries Ltd were among the first producers in the U.K. to gain accreditation in February 1997. The nursery has been inspected regularly by the independent inspectorate since then, and has gained an accreditation certificate each year up to the present time, achieving no non-conformities .

BOPP - The British Ornamental Plant Producers' Certification Scheme (BOPP) has been designed for use by growers and packers of ornamental horticultural products. Baginton Nurseries Ltd were one of the first growers to achieve BOPP accreditation and we continue to be annually audited against the BOPP standard. BOPP assesses all aspects of our business and drives professionalism and sustainability. Audits look at our employment criteria, staff training, crop management, environmental responsibility, record keeping and traceability. This means that our customers can have faith in the quality, safety and consistency of our products and service.

The scheme aims to set high standards of professionalism in the way in which certificated businesses operate and through unbiased and effective evaluation, by an United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) accredited certification body where applicable, to ensure that these standards are maintained. The ultimate objective is to ensure that customers can have complete confidence in both product and service when dealing with BOPP Certificated suppliers.

BOPP has brought many changes and improvements to the way Baginton Nurseries Ltd now run their business. The systems and records required for BOPP have established good nursery practice and improved traceability, making it possible to implement strategies and business objectives more easily.

Access to information regarding our business procedures and policies are made transparent and customers are able to quickly establish a comfortable working relationship.
