Royal Van Zanten Joins ThinkPlants Family

The ThinkPlants Group recently announced that Royal Van Zanten has now joined its network of breeders, growers, and suppliers.

This new addition to the ThinkPlants family continues to expand the growing portfolio of genetics and broaden the reach ThinkPlants and its suppliers and customers have in the North American Market.

Royal Van Zanten located in Rijsenhout, The Netherlands, specializes in advanced plant breeding and has introduced some leading genetics into North America.

“We have been selling our plants in the United States and Canada, and we think certain products would fit very well with ThinkPlants,” said Rick Kroon, Head of Sales for Van Zanten Breeding B.V. “We feel that participation with the ThinkPlants group will give more exposure to our beautiful genetics at a retailer level.”

From Royal Van Zanten, ThinkPlants will now represent their Alstroemeria Colorita Series as well as the Limonium Salt Lake. “I have been a big fan of the Alstroemeria Colorita breeding, and I look forward to working on the promotion and sales of this product,” says Joey Wiseman, Director at ThinkPlants. “I have also worked in the past selling Limonium Salt Lake and will enjoy doing so again.”

The addition of Royal Van Zanten’s membership within ThinkPlants comes on the heels of other recent new member additions, Kieft Seed and Creekside Greenhouses.

Other group members include Danziger, Syngenta Flowers, James Greenhouses, Terra Nova Nurseries, Kapiteyn, Unex Inc, Green Circle Growers and new genetics from KiwiFlora.
