Be sure to stop by stand 440, 440A, 440B, 440C, 440D, because that’s where you’ll find us and our new 408 m2 stand! Here you can take a look at our pet accessories and of course our latest products.
This year, the focus will be on sustainability and e-commerce. Below you can already read a little about what you can expect from us!
E-commerce and digitalisation at Flamingo Pet Products
Digitalisation was already high on Flamingo's agenda, but Corona and our 50th Flamingo anniversary accelerated everything. Last year we launched our new website with online catalogue and this year we introduced our new web shop! The new B2B web shop gives customers the opportunity to order wherever and whenever they want. Furthermore, they can always keep up to date with the latest trends and developments. For both our customers and pet parents, this means access to all product information and lots of fun and interesting information in the form of blog posts on the ‘Tips and advice’ page.
Flamingo Pet Products and GS1
There’s a lot to say about each product. What materials is it made of? How do you maintain it? For which animal(s) is it suitable? At Flamingo, we carefully store the information about our 8,500 accessories and snacks in our PIM (Product Information Management) system. This information is added and updated daily by the Master Data team. This way dealers and pet parents always have access to the correct and up-to-date product information. GS1 gives our clients the opportunity to download product information in a uniform way from various suppliers who are connected to GS1 GDSN, including Flamingo. This makes exchanging data a lot easier.
Flamingo Pet Products and durability
At Flamingo we care about pets, but we also believe it’s very important to do business in a sustainable way. Guided by the United Nations Sustainability Goals, we identify which sustainability topics have the greatest impact and we are making changes – small and large – within the company to help the bigger picture. We are a member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition, an organisation that brings together companies within the pet sector and helps them to do business with consideration for people, animals and the environment. Since 2020, we’ve been investing in 'Flamingo Green', our range of 130 natural, recycled and recyclable products and packaging. At Flamingo we work as much as possible with sustainable partners. For example, we print our catalogues at a CO2-neutral printing factory using 100% vegetable ink on FSC-certified paper. The 3,480 solar panels on the roof of our main building provide 41,65% of our energy consumption.
We are constantly revising our sustainability policy in order to create a better world for us and our pets!
We are looking forward to meeting you at Anido! Will you be there?
