Esmeralda Farms has entered into an agreement to purchase Sande Flowers. This acquisition—which includes Sande’s variety portfolio and its operations in Ecuador and the United States— will begin on June 1, 2022.
Sande Flowers, a fourth-generation, Dutch-owned farm in Ecuador, is renowned for its extensive Calla, Lily, and Ranunculus programs. Having popularized such names as Starfighter Lily, Schwarzwalder Calla, and Strauss Calla, Sande also cultivates a wide array of the newest breeds of summer flowers.
In leveraging Sande’s assets, they will expand Esmeralda’s production capabilities and secure valuable inventories of Calla, Oriental Lily, and LA Lily bulbs for seasons to come. Sande’s high-quality variety portfolio makes a perfect complement to Esmeralda’s current catalog.
The over 200 hectares of land gained in this acquisition will also allow for the increased production of in-demand Esmeralda varieties.
