Bloomon also expands into Belgium

Dutch online flower seller Bloomon plans to increase its international presence over the next few years, starting with Germany and a pilot project in Belgium.

To Antwerp and Ghent

The pilot project currently consists of delivering flowers to customers in in Antwerp and Ghent: "Ever since we launched in the Netherlands, we have received numerous questions from Belgium to deliver there as well. We are proud to say we can now provide our southern neighbours with a whole range of bouquets", founder Patrick Hurenkamp said.

Earlier this month, Bloomon revealed it had attracted 3.5 million euro from investors, money that shall be used to support its international expansion.
