We are located in Denmark, the homeland of pot plants, and our knowledge of product development within the pot plant segment combined with the technical breeding expertise of Ball is a perfect match. When added to the global distribution network of PanAmerican Seed, even more distributors, growers and consumers will gain access to our unique assortment of products.”
“We welcome Carsten and the Ex-Plant team to Ball. It is exciting to add these high-quality pot plants to our offering, and we are pleased to be bringing in Ex-Plant’s expertise in the pot plant market to our company,” stated Anne Leventry, President of PanAmerican Seed.
