Dümmen Orange and South Korean government agency Gyeonggi-do Agricultural Research & Extension Services (GARES) signed an agreement, granting Dümmen Orange the exclusive sales rights for a series of succulents developed by GARES.
The agreement was signed by Pieter Koen (Product Manager Tropicals at Dümmen Orange), Kim Seok Cheol (Director of GARES) and Kim Gyun Joong (President of Koduk Green House Inc.). Koduk Green House is appointed by GARES to acts as its agent. This collaboration is an extension of the existing partnership between Dümmen Orange and GARES on rose breeding. At this stage the primary focus of the new agreement will lie on the Echeveria and Sedum varieties.
Echeveria is a crop native to Mexico and is the most popular crop of succulents. Over 600 varieties are being sold worldwide, and the Cactus Succulent Research Institute (part of GARES) in South Korea has developed 32 varieties since 2013. Sedum is an easy branching and leafy succulent with good environmental adaptability and ornamental value.
