Our Power

Breeding to feed the world! That’s our goal as an international vegetable breeding organization. Simply said, this means we develop new vegetable varieties. Our assortment consists of 1,200 different varieties across dozens of diverse crops; from bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce to bitter gourd, hot peppers and of course onions. Enza Zaden produces the seeds of these vegetable varieties and sells them worldwide.

Even though we are an international company with more than 2,500 employees worldwide, we still are an independent family business, which clearly shows in our business culture. You easily feel right at home and your ideas are valued. Entrepreneurship, teamwork, and taking responsibility are central values to our mission, and our employees are the heart and soul of the organization.
