End of Pink Champion era

The Pink Champion variety is receiving a royal allure after twenty years and is becoming 'Royal'. Last week, the Dutch company Stolk Brothers was coloured in pink. As a breeder, Anthura honoured the company Stolk Brothers for the occasion of the very last delivery of young Pink Champion plants.

The first plants were supplied in 1998 by Nic van der Knaap (then director of Anthura) and Marco van Herk (current commercial director of Anthura) to Kees Stolk (the director) of Stolk Potplanten. The popularity of Pink Champion was huge over the last twenty years. Around five million plants were traded by Anthura and Stolk Brothers.

After being grown exclusively by Stolk Brothers for almost twenty years, this well known anthurium variety is freeing the stage for a new Champion. The latest ready Pink Champion plants will enter trade around mid May 2018 and after this only the royal successor will be available in the trade.

Festive conclusion to 20 years
Yesterday the truck with young Pink Champion plants drove to Stolk Brothers for the last time. To commemorate this last delivery the staff were treated to a pink ice cream and we looked back at the years of collaboration with the current directors of Stolk Brothers.
