Royal Brinkman and Ceyhinz Link join forces to provide growers in Mexico with Riococo coconut substrate mats.
"Our specialists in Mexico advise growers on their crop strategy. Substrate is an essential part of this. We already have rock wool blocks and germ plugs in our assortment and now with the coconut substrate slabs we can offer the complete substrate assortment. We were looking for a reliable partner for this and we found it in Ceyhinz", according to Ben Sosef, branch manager of Royal Brinkman Mexico.

The coconut substrate slabs are mainly used in the cultivation of vegetables and soft fruit. The coconuts grow in Sri Lanka on fresh water. After a strict selection, the drying process of four to six weeks starts. The quality control system ensures that only the highest quality coconut shells are used. This also ensures that the consistency and uniformity of the coconut substrate mats is maintained. The brand is already known in Mexico. Ceyhinz Link International was looking for a new distributor in Mexico and is pleased to have Royal Brinkman as a partner.
By combining Royal Brinkman's local presence and network with the knowledge and quality of the coconut substrate mats, Royal Brinkman and Ceyhinz Link International Inc. reinforce each other. Co-founder and CEO of Riococo Shan Halamba says: "When I thought about giving something to the world from Sri Lanka, the coconut first came to my mind. I thought it would be great to make the coconut shell part of global food production. And so it happened. The Riococo brand is already well known, also in Mexico, and through this exclusive partnership with Royal Brinkman, we can serve the growers in Mexico even better."
Royal Brinkman is thus expanding its knowledge of and products within the substrate package into a total package. Ben explains: "A great addition. Now we can advise the growers even better because of the expanded substrate assortment. This means tailored advice and the most suitable solution for every grower."
