10 billion people to feed

Our aim is to ensure that everyone, everywhere, has access to healthy and varied vegetables. Quite ambitious, especially if you consider the rapid growth of the world’s population. By 2050, nearly 10 billion people are living on our planet. What’s more, our climate changes and available agricultural land decreases. Therefore, we need future-proof veggies.

What makes a veggie future-proof?

We need vegetables that are not only healthy, tasty and of top quality. The plants also need to have a high productivity and they need to be able to do so with as little as possible support of crop protection products, water or fertilizer. 

In short, a vegetable is fit for the future if it ticks all the boxes:

  • Tasty
  • Healthy
  • Low input > high yield
  • Top quality

Healthy veggies for everyone? Challenge accepted!

As an international vegetable breeding company, we develop new vegetable varieties. And produce and sell the seeds of these varieties all over the world. At Enza Zaden we continuously and significantly invest in people and new technologies. We have a long-term vision and we cherish long-term relationships.
