  • Roberto Ante - Regional Manager - Colombia & Ecuador
    Roberto Ante

    Hailing from Bogota, Colombia, Roberto was born into a family that cherished agriculture as a beloved pastime. This early connection with nature inspired him to pursue a degree in Agronomy at Zamorano University, a unique institution that provides hands-on experience with rigorous studies across vast farmlands.

    Roberto's journey in the floral world began in 1995 in nurturing various flowers, including Carnations, roses, Freesias, Gypso, and stock. He also has experience with rose propagation and knowledge of the floral lifecycle.

    Roberto has collaborated with industry giants such as Floramerica, GR Chia, and Rosen Tantau. In 2002 he was the Quality Assurance specialist at Miami Bouquet Collection, subsequently transitioning to Portland with Kendal Floral.

    Roberto and his wife live in Colombia, where they tend to a small farm, with a few cherished animals while establishing a thriving blackberry field - his personal favorite fruit.
