Dümmen Orange, Perfect Plants to Collaborate in North America

Dümmen Orange and Perfect Plants (formerly known as Pothos Plant) kicked off the new year with a memorable moment by signing an agreement for intensive collaboration in the North-American market. The agreement grants Dümmen Orange the exclusive sales rights for Perfect Plants’ Spathiphyllum genetics.

In this new partnership, Dümmen Orange will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution, while Perfect Plants will coordinate the production of tissue-cultured plants in their South African laboratory facilities.

Several key introductions for the North American market have been planned for this year, such as the innovative tetraploid variety Sweet Catalina which was displayed in the Dümmen Orange booth at last months’ TPIE in Fort Lauderdale.

Mike van Schie, sales manager for Perfect Plants, said, “By joining forces with Dümmen Orange’s North American sales team, Perfect Plants has the opportunity to significantly increase the impact for our proprietary assortment of Spathiphyllum. The entire Perfect Plants team is looking forward to the collaboration with Dümmen Orange and the possibilities that our partnership will create.”

Pieter Koen, product manager for tropicals at Dümmen Orange, adds “Spathiphyllum is a great addition to our Tropical’s product range which already includes anthurium, orchids and succulents. I am confident that the innovative Perfect Plants genetics will help us in having a great and positive impact on the North American market.
