Jan. 27, 2016, Mishmar HaShiva, Israel — Danziger is continuing to expand its portfolio of products to the North American market with the addition of cuttings of Beekenkamp’s leading poinsettia varieties.
“We are pleased to meet the demands of our customers through collaboration with a market leader like Beekenkamp,” says Micha Danziger, co‐CEO at Danziger “Dan” Flower Farm.
“We’ve worked hard to establish an advanced production infrastructure that provides our customers with the highest level of quality and service.”
With more than 15 years of experience in poinsettia breeding, Beekenkamp conducts extensive trials at five different U.S. sites for all of its poinsettia varieties.

Cuttings will be supplied from Danziger’s new production farm in Guatemala and sold by both companies.
