STRENGTH IN NUMBERS… PARTNERSHIP & COMMUNITY ARE MORE THAN JUST OUR WAY TO DO BUSINESS.
Through collaboration with industry associations, trade groups, colleges and universities, political action groups, clubs, even the local little league… every relationship helps not only our industry, but the communities who make this industry thrive.
At Mellano & Company we value the importance of staying involved with industry trade groups and educational institutions to remain up-to-date and engaged with passing along our knowledge to other industry leaders and being part of discussions. Whether it is presenting at trade shows, sitting on industry boards, participating in industry planning committees or making our voice heard on Capitol Hill, maintaining our professional associations with our floral friends is vital.Michelle Castellano, Vice President of Corporate Affairs, states “Taking the time to be involved reaps much more benefits then you can imagine. The connections with industry leaders and exposure to new ideas, the education you receive and share with others, but most important your ability to directly influence your industry and community is something we take much pride in.”Mellano & Company is not only involved in leading industry associations, but also in community projects. Local schools and community groups are often seen touring the farm and learning agricultural practices. Educating the next generation of flower growers and floral consumers is an important part of the Mellano & Company family!
