This demonstrates our commitment to bringing the best value to our customers worldwide.”

Andy Warren (Managing Director Bloomz New Zealand ltd.) adds: “We are happy to announce the sale of our Bloomz proprietary calla lily varieties and breeding pipeline to Dümmen Orange. We are confident that Dümmen Orange will take the innovative achievements of our programme and continue the quest for best of class for growers worldwide. My personal thanks to breeder Jaap Spaans who was integral to the success of the Bloomz programme. We thank Dümmen Orange for their professional approach and the seamless transition of the acquisition, and wish them well for the future!”
