Consolidation in Dutch kalanchoe production

Kalanchoe Solis PlantTwo Dutch kalanchoe growers, Solis Plant and De Veranda will combine their activities. Currently, both nurseries experience huge developments in the kalanchoe market. For the time being, they will continue to market their products under their own label. In the first quarter of 2018, sales will be merged. Also, one branding will be developed.
Both nurseries cover an area of more than 3 hectares. De Veranda grows both botanical kalanchoe species and Calandiva, Grandiva and Calanday from breeder Fides (Dümmen Orange). Solis Plant has its own Le Chic Blooming Jewels brand.
The Dutch kalanchoe production was already limited to a handful of major players on this market. With this consolidation, the number of growers gets even smaller.
