Flamingo Group and OptiBoost

We are incredibly happy to be part of this collaboration with Flamingo, a company whose reach and impact in cut flowers is very large.

Taking responsibility in the form of quality, ESG, and a strong focus on
innovation is something we share.

The British market is a large and significant part of the
world’s cut flowers. Lots of roses and cut flowers are delivered, consumed, and
processed here. That OptiBoost soon will be live with collaboration in this
market and reach consumers with treated roses to some of the largest supermarket stores
is proof of our technology and quality.

It is estimated that the UK cut flower industry has an
annual turnover of around £ 2,2-3 trillion pounds. The flower industry is also
a growing industry that continues to make progress year after year.

“The collaboration with Flamingo Group is ideal, they own the entire chain from cultivation to resale, which means that we have the opportunity to create great value for the customer.” Says, Johan Möllerström, CEO OptiCept Technologies

and improve all links in the chain. OptiBoost technology has the proven ability
