DNA Green Group will expand its range of cut flowers by incorporating Terra Nigra, a company specializing in breeding and propagation of gerberas and roses.
“Now that we are a part of the DNA Green Group, we will have access to the newest techniques in breeding,” says Peter Boerlage, managing director of Terra Nigra. Terra Nigra was previously owned by the Boerlage family.
“Our customers will benefit from faster development of a complete range of strong varieties for our cut rose and cut gerbera assortments,” he says.
“In its long history, Terra Nigra has built a good assortment, an outstanding sales network and a professional team of employees. With this move, DNA Green Group takes the next step in realizing its growth strategy,” says Biense Visser, CEO of DNA Green Group. “This strategy is aimed at creating synergies in technology, production and sales. We realize these synergies by consolidating various breeding programs and cross selling of our products to our existing customers.”
DNA Green Group is a leader in advanced scientific breeding and selection techniques of flowers and plants. By combining these techniques with the rose and gerbera genetics from Terra Nigra, new, improved varieties of these products will be available sooner.
DNA Green Group was the result of the merger between Dümmen Group and Agribio Group in 2013. Headquartered in DeLier, the Netherlands, DNA Green Group has 6,000 employees worldwide. For more information, visit the new DNA Green Group website.
