About Us


The Company

It is represented by the sister company Tecnoviv for the sale of royalties in Ecuador, Colombia, Japan and Korea and is also supported by other agencies to extend their business globally.


Intellectual Property

We protect our commercial varieties through patents and breeders’ rights at an international level before they are being introduced to the market.


Genetic improvement and Biotechnology

The genetic improvement of a wide range of ornamental crops is carried out, Esmeralda Breeding makes thousands of crosses per year, thus producing numerous seedlings that go through a strict process of evaluation and selection in different farms located in Ecuador, Colombia, Mexico and other countries.


Our varieties are carefully selected to ensure they meet with the aesthetic and agronomic requirements based on productivity, agronomic behaviour, plague and disease tolerance, response to the transportation and vase lifespan.

To date, we have around 100 commercial varieties and many more are coming soon.



We create differentiated and profitable varieties for maximum commercial use at an international level.

Innovation is the secret to our success, we are creating for the future.


Our Secret

In our laboratory, about 100 specialized people are involved in the process of creating new flower varieties through conventional breeding methods and modern laboratory techniques.

We attribute the success of Esmeralda Breeding to the commitment of our team of collaborators, advanced technology, climatic conditions and visionary mentality.
