British Bloom & Wild Takes Over Dutch Bloomon - Article on Thursd (1)

22 April was a very exciting day for the British online florist Bloom & Wild: they have taken over the Dutch company Bloomon. Eight years since the founders Aron Gelbard and Ben Stanway packed the first flowers to send through the post, Bloom & Wild is thrilled to share this big news. Since both brands have a strong market position, they will both continue to exist. Bloomon’s biggest market is Benelux and Denmark. Bloom & Wild, the United Kingdom. Both florists are growing fast in Germany. Bloom & Wild and Bloomon merging together is a huge step to build the largest and most loved European online floral business – active in 8 countries – delivering flowers and indoor plants.

A Few weeks after the takeover, Mother’s Day is coming. Both Brands are keeping their own look & feel. This joint venture should give a turnover of 250 million euros by the end of March 2022.

Peony season is back! And it comes with magical gifts right in time for mother’s day.

Whether it’s celebrating mum, someone who’s always been like a mum, or those taking on the pressures of being a new mum in a strange world – they deserve thanks for everything they do and for all that they are.

Peonies make the perfect gift and they’re just what’s needed to breathe new life back into the same four walls and give everyone a much-needed dose of escapism. These mood-lifting-bloom-bursting magical fluffy flowers are back just in time for Mother’s Day on the 9th May, with a season from the end of April through to the end of June.

In addition to the classic Mother’s Day favorites such as the peony and Delphinium, real style icons are also featured, such as the elegant orchid. The exception for the exceptional.”

Big Steps and Future Goals

Since their founding in 2013 and 2014 respectively, Bloom & Wild and Bloomon have taken big steps in the floral industry.  There Marketing is exquisite.  Aron Gelbard, Bloom & Wild’s co-founder, will remain CEO, Bloomon founders Bart Troost and Patrick Hurenkamp will become Chief International Officer and Chief Innovation Officer respectively.

 

Aron Gelbard

“The Bloomon team has built an excellent business with a shared global ambition, common values and a mutual obsession with harnessing technology, supply chain innovation, and outstanding bouquets design to revolutionize customer experience in the flower delivery market. We combine our strengths. With our knowledge, experience, and network, we have all we need to  strengthen our position as the market leader in Europe.”

Combined Strength

Bart Troost

“Bloom & Wild has his own app and has on-off sales, Bloomon is specialized in subscriptions and bouquet design. Although since 2020 Bloomon already switched to an online florist. That way the consumer can buy a one-time order too. I believe our combined strength will accelerate our growth as one group.”

 

 

Structurally Invested in Both Brands

In January, Bloom & Wild raised a further 75 million British pounds in a new round of investment.  Bloomon and Bloom & Wild have been profitable for some time now.

Bart Troost

“We will continue to invest in both brands with the same amazing team, just like Bloom & Wild, under the same brand and with the same people.”
