After the visit in April in Holland, we now mention a new Romanian- Dutch business partnership, partnership that was born at the initiative of my friend Florea Sorin. After the visit we payed to Jan Hooymans , I found out that he has the greatest compost factory for mushrooms from Europe, a factory that is also the most modern in the world. the compost is the manure, or the bed where the mushrooms grow .
In fact this compost is the real secret for a top harvest….and Jan has this secret. Motivated as usual, Mr. Sorin managed to pleasantly surprise even Jan. That’s why Jan and his accountant, Peter and with his nephew Johan came to Bucharest at the beginning of June. Due to Mr. Sorin’s connections, we were welcome by the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Daniel Constantin who seemed to be very interested in this new project and he promised to support us unconditionally.
The project will be accomplished in 4-5 stages and when the final stage will be ready, we will speak about compost production, a mushroom farm, a tin factory, new jobs (the most important element) and a total investment of 20 million Euros. Of course, the pigeons had their place in this visit. Jan has visited the breeding sections of Mr. Sorin and the 24 individual boxes. Right from the beginning we asked Jan to be sincere and critical, and so he did. His final opinion pleasantly surprised Mr. Sorin and me and made us trust our future. From the 48 doves that are now in the individual boxes 45 received the highest mark:”SUPER”!!!! Jan was amazed to see the density of quality doves. For this reason, Jan and Sorin will start in 2014 a plan for common mating!!!! For the first time in Romania!!!!
I think it’s not necessary to mention that this is how the Romanian pigeonsport is promoted in the world! Modestly and yet proud, I thus say that what we, as a perfectly united team (“Team Florea Sorin”- Florea Sorin, Florea “Mazare” Ion and Dinu Mihai) , managed to do for the pigeonsport of Romania at the global level , during the last year, is what nobody managed to do since the Revolution till present day. These are not just words…these are FACTS!!!!
