The site
McCallum Nurseries sees itself as a service-oriented organization, which seeks total satisfaction of all its customers, suppliers and employees. The company believes internal marketing is as external marketing to ensure maximum value delivered to customers. To this end, the company endeavors to ensure that its employees are trained, highly motivated and loyal.

The company has also established stringent quality controls from the start of production up to finished goods and all the way to shipping. The company’s activities bear the hallmark of a green company. However, the company maintains that its respect for the environment is not narrowly a convenient marketing ploy but a deep and abiding one stemming from native Buddhist traditions of the country as well as from love of beauty. Established in 1993, McCallum Nurseries (Pvt) Ltd., is a member of a group of diversified family owned companies.
