The Aprodes Foundation

Boosting vegetable consumption in Peru

The Aprodes Foundation stimulates poor families in Peru to grow their own vegetables by providing training on new and existing production methods and sharing practical technical knowledge with the locals. Aprodes also holds informative sessions about healthy eating. Rijk Zwaan's Committee for Development Cooperation has been supplying vegetable seeds since 2005 and also shares its technical expertise.

Committee for Development Cooperation

The Rijk Zwaan Committee for Development Cooperation is involved in development work, with a focus on sharing our knowledge about vegetable farming. We work together with local organisations to provide technical advice and support to farmers and growers in developing countries. Our aim is to stimulate vegetable consumption within families and communities, and to help farmers to improve their income position.
