Ivan Liao, Royal Base Corporation:
South East Asia ready for new orchid species
Ivan Liao at the Horti Asia in Bangkok.
Expand in South East Asia
Royal Base Corporation is a breeder and grower of flask plant, young plant and cut flower phaleanopsis, which they also presented at the Horti Asia. Currently, their main market is situated in Japan. Besides that, they also export to Russia, the US, France, Dubai and South East Asia. In South East Asia they would like to expand there market and this is also the reason why they are present at the show.
"We are exploring the possibilities to expand our market in South East Asia. We see large potential to sell cut flowers and young plants, in this region" explains Liao. According to him, the people in South East Asia are demanding for more orchid varieties. "In the past only a limited number of orchids varieties and colors (mainly dendrobiums) were available to the general public. Currently, we notice a demand for new varieties, like the phaleanopsis." Therefore, they are exploring the possibilities to supply their cut flower phaleanopsis in this region. In the future, Lioa also expects an increase in the demand for young plant phaleanopsis. " As the phaleanopsis becomes popular in South East Asia, more and more growers will be eager to grow them."
Royal Base Corporation was established in 2003. The breeding and cultivation activities of Royal Base Corporation are executed at two locations; Taiwan and Vietnam. In Taiwan their 2 ha sized greenhouse, including an tissue culture laboratory is located. At this site, they produce more than 3 million flask plants annually. Their production center is established in Vietnam. This is a 8 ha sized greenhouse in which young plants, cut flower phaleanopsis and other plants are being cultivated. 3 ha of the greenhouse is covered with glass and equipped with Priva systems. This greenhouse is used for the cultivation of cut flower orchids. The other 5 ha greenhouse is covered with plastic and is used for the cultivation of other plants and young plants.
In the coming years, the breeder and grower will expand their greenhouse in Vietnam. "This expansion will increase our cut flower production up to 1.3 million stems a year."
