’De Zonnebloem’’ thanks Royal Lemkes and ALDI


Marc Damen, Director of the National Association De Zonnebloem, would like to thank Royal Lemkes and ALDI for their successful sunflower campaign ‘Sunsation Sunflower’, which saw one Euro from every sunflower sold, being donated to De Zonnebloem.

This year, National Association De Zonnebloem celebrates its 70-year anniversary and growers' association Sunsation Sunflower has developed a special potted sunflower in honour of this occasion. Royal Lemkes and ALDI have successfully taken this promotion on board and have sold the potted sunflower in all 500 ALDI stores across the Netherlands. This resulted in a fantastic donation of € 50,000 going to National Association De Zonnebloem.
