At the moment, a long cherished wish of Van Zanten Breeding B.V. comes true in having one location in the ‘Sabana de Bogotá’ in which we can show and grow all our flowers and young plants.
This location is located on the farm of the carnation specialist, Colibri Flowers S.A.
Recently Mr. Andres Toro from Colibri Flowers S.A. and Mrs. Sjoukje Heimovaara from Van Zanten Breeding B.V. signed the documents which will be the start of a prosperous collaboration. In the course of next year the new location will show varieties of Alstroemeria, Chrysanthemum and Limonium. We are very excited to start the collaboration with Colibri Flowers, and are looking forward to a great opening of our new location in 2019.
Known in the flower industry as “Carnation specialists”, Colibri Flowers started growing cut flowers in 1987. Today we grow top quality carnations, spray carnations, Green ball and red roses on our 65 hectares, located forty five minutes away from the Bogota airport. With thirty years of experience, we have earned a reputation of quality growers maintaining the highest social and environmental responsibility credentials in the industry.
