This year, De Ruiter breeding, commercial & marketing teams have been hard at work to present new & refreshing varieties with revamped selections. Their unique marketing concept of ‘The BIG Five’ colour lines, Red, White, Orange, Yellow & Pink each represented by one of the African big five animals, Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino & Buffalo has been carefully considered since last years trade shows to bring a clean & refreshing line up for this year's edition of IFTEX.
