"At the end of WOII I saw the opportunity to focus on professional growers. It wasn't easy, but we succeeded with broad bean variety "Ezetha's Witkiem". Growers noticed that this variety was value-for-money and this way the trust in our company became bigger and bigger."
Jacob Mazereeuw, founder Enza Zaden
Focus on breeding: 1959 - 1984
"The success of the tomato Extase put Enza Zaden on the map. Sales grew fast, so we could invest in well-educated personnel, breeding programs and technology."
Piet Mazereeuw, son of Jacob, Member of the Supervisory Board of Enza Zaden
International expansion as of 1985
Spreading wings: 1995 - now
"Family businesses focus on the long-term, are innovative and cost conscious and are important for employment. Our great strength is that we are not only a family business, but as business also a family."
