Rijk Zwaan is a plant breeding company. We develop new vegetable varieties and sell the seeds produced from them all over the world. We tap into the rich diversity nature offers us, and combine it with our extensive market knowledge and state-of-the-art techniques.
Developing new varieties
At Rijk Zwaan, we develop varieties with improved benefits, or ‘traits’, for the entire fresh produce chain. We do so by continuously developing new crossings and selecting the best offspring from them. High-tech research ensures that we work in an increasingly targeted and efficient manner.
