After a 2,5 year pause due to Covid-19, Jungle Talks was finally able to organize another Mastercourse Floriculture again and select a group of managers between 25 and 40 years old representing international, ‘future-proof’ floricultural companies. These managers are currently traveling around the Westland region and have visited the GreenTech and Flower Trials. In addition, they will also visit Royal Flora Holland, Dutch Flower Group, and the Floriade.
The Mastercourse Floriculture is powered by Jungle Talks in close cooperation with providers of knowledge and technology from the Netherlands. The course kicked off two weeks ago, and the participants were immersed in a wealth of horticultural knowledge and experience provided by partners Koppert, Ridder Growing Solutions, Hortilux Schrèder, Logiqs, Horticoop, Dümmen Orange, Horti XS, Letsgrow, Van Krimpen and Van der Valk Horti Systems.
Cooperating companies’ directors received the participants and discussed merely strategy and vision, not so much products or services. Initiator Ed Smit: ‘Every Mastercourse is an intensive experience, for me as an organizer, but also for the participants and partners involved, but I can already see it was worth it again this year, and we hope to continue now Covid-19 seems to be kept at bay, at least during the summer months in Europe,’ says Ed Smit.
