In 1862 a small company started cultivating bulbs alongside potatoes on the ‘Zanderij van Six.' Gerrit Veldhuyzen van Zanten had a visionary outlook: at that time bulbs seemed to be the future and the world was the market. His pioneering spirit, perseverance and partiality for high quality have never left our business. It is the basis for our continuity and success.
In terms of bulb history, Royal Van Zanten has become a completely different business in the last few decades: an international ‘breeding ground' for plants and flowers. It is a business with an appealing range of basic materials and our business' structure ensures focus is fixed on the market.
