On 13 June HollandDoor organized an excursion for Colombian cut flower growers from Agricola El Cactus. They mainly produce carnations and roses. The guests were very interested to see the similarities and differences between Colombian and Dutch horticulture. They not only visited cut flower growers, but also visited greenhouse vegetable and potted plant growers to have a clear overview of the Dutch greenhouse sector.
The group visited Nice2Get Roses, Duijnisveld Sweet Pepper and Floricultura Orchids. The Colombian guests were impressed with the current state of Dutch horticulture. They concluded that there are possibilities for improvement in Colombia but also many chances to increase profits over there.
