Our history

Container Centralen (CC) was founded in 1977 as a collaborative venture between Danish flower and pot plant exporters. In 1980 the first Dutch exporters joined the CC Pool System. In 1989 VGB – the Dutch union of flower wholesalers – acquired part of CC and CC became a limited company registered in Denmark. The CC Container became the established standard for the transport and presentation of flowers and plants in Europe.
