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 Calla, Lily, and Ranunculus programs. Having popularized names as Starfighter Lily, Schwarzwalder Calla, and Strauss Calla, Sande also cultivates an array of the newest breeds of summer flowers.
The over 200 hectares of land gained in this acquisition will also allow for the increased production of Esmeralda varieties, while also supplying the space to broaden its product lines.
