Exclusive Quality Chrysanthemums
In recent years Zentoo has become the market leader in exclusive quality chrysanthemums. With more than 90 different varieties in the collection and at least 15 new market introductions every year, Zentoo can truly call itself a forerunner in product innovation.
Zentoo was founded in 2007 by a group of four chrysanthemum growers with a passion for quality and innovation. The forces were joined, the experience could be shared and the innovative power was increased. Now 14 years later, twelve different growers have been brought together under the Zentoo brand. In addition to the focus on growing top quality chrysanthemums on a daily basis, the growers also emphasize on innovation and annually test about 150 new varieties. This means that we continuously work on a collection with the strongest varieties, the most beautiful colours and renewed shapes.
No flower is underestimated like the chrysanthemum, but perhaps this is because people are not aware that the chrysanthemum is a versatile flower that can be used very well in bouquets. In the past five years, the supply of chrysanthemums has expanded significantly.
In addition to the regular white and yellow chrysanthemums, there are also all kinds of pastel coloured chrysanthemums, from ivory to salmon. Chrysanthemums are available in all kinds of shapes and sizes. There are XL disbudded chrysanthemums with a diameter of more than 15 cm and there are small-flowered santinis with more than 25 flowers (of about 1.5 cm) on a stem.
The Zentoo collection consists of more than 90 different varieties. It contains santinis, spray chrysanthemums and disbudded chrysanthemums. The Zentoo collection is adapted four times a year to the changing needs of the market. Due to a production cycle of about ten weeks, the Zentoo range can be flexibly adjusted throughout the year. Most of the collection is available all year round, but various varieties are added every season in the colours of that specific season.
Zentoo works together with six different breeders where we can do our cherry-picking. After a test period of one year with about 100 stems per week, a selection is made of high potentials. Then test concepts with about 1,500 stems per week are conducted. These flowers are also being sold through various exporters to get feedback from the market. This feedback is very important to determine which varieties have the potential to actually become commercial.
All Zentoo products are MPS A+ and MPS GAP certified. This means that they meet the FSI 2020 standards. In addition, Zentoo wants to burden the environment as little as possible. That is why for several years no more use has been made of products that are harmful to bees.
In addition to these certificates, Zentoo is also working on making other aspects more sustainable. For example, paper sleeves are used for santini and all our locations are one by one equipped with solar panels. LED lighting, residual heat and CO2 from Shell are also used at various locations to grow our top quality chrysanthemums.
