The challenges in the market lead to specific requests for high-quality vegetable seeds, market knowledge and a strong and cooperative network within the chain. Are you looking for the latest market information, keen to cooperate with an international network of chain partners or looking for the best quality varieties for your business? We’re happy to help.

Our strong organic vegetable portfolio

When expanding our organic range, our focus is on quality. We introduce top-class seeds specifically for the organic food market. All these varieties have in common that they have strong resistances combined with a good yield. Besides, the organic varieties have been bred for a broad spectrum of local farming situations, attracting consumers thanks to their distinctive shape, visual appeal and/or flavour. Our organic vegetable portfolio enables you as an organic farmer to profitably capitalise on the growing demand for such products, with a crop that always meets your requirements.
