Our Vision

To be the first choice for agricultural producers/processors seeking energy solutions

Our History

We were created by an innovative group of greenhouse growers in 1988, who came together to pool their purchasing power. Being large consumers of natural gas, members of Flower’s Canada, Ontario and Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers decided to work together in their natural gas purchasing.  As owners of the business, growers retained control of the offering. The high level of trust resulting from this business model is a tremendous bonus and established piece of mind in the top cost of business.
