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.

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.
“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.”
“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.
"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."
