Jorge Mohr grew up watching his family work with hazelnuts at the family farm in Osorno and as part of his education he spent many months as a trainee with Shawn Mehlenbacher at the OSU breeding station in Oregon. Jorge and Gaspar joined hands in Nefuen, a company that distributes nursery plants of OSU-varieties in Chile and Europe on an exclusive basis.
Rian Vletter is director and owner of Vletter & Den Haan, a Lilium breeding company. For more than 20 years Vletter’s new varieties of lilies have been propagated by the lab of Grupo Hijuelas. Vletter & Den Haan will now team up with Nefuen to introduce the new OSU-assortment of hazelnuts in Europe.
