Chrysal's roots

Pokon & Chrysal had their headquarters in Naarden, The Netherlands and remained a family business until 2007. Pokon plant food activities were sold to an investment company, and our official name changed to Chrysal International.

Our promise

The world is changing, and so is our business. To be more precise: everything our customers expect from us, and how we add value to their business has changed as well. And so have we. To make this clear to all stakeholders and emphasize our drive and focus, we have the following promise: Chrysal, Nurturing beauty

Nurturing literally means: ‘to support and encourage, as during the period of training or development; to foster, to bring up; train; educate. This is exactly what we as Chrysal do, day in day out. With our products, but also with our extensive knowledge of all things floral, providing the best solutions to our partners and customers. We help them flourish, by nurturing. Further, Nurture is also a noun: something that nourishes; nourishment; food. Well, we don’t have to explain that one, do we?

Beauty is all about the quality of being pleasing, especially to look at, something that gives great pleasure. Beauty also means: ‘something that is an excellent example of its type’. And finally, beauty has a meaning of a quality that makes something especially good or attractive.
