We believe that personal attention for our clients, combined with our flexible organisation and state-of the-art genetics, are at the heart of our success. We decided to focus on a limited number of crops, with the goal to be the best within those crops. We are proud that this focus allowed us to become the world leader in hybrid spinach and hybrid Swiss chard seeds, and be a major player in beans and sweetcorn seeds.
