Bejo, breeder of vegetable seeds for the professional grower
Bejo is a leading company in breeding, production and sales of vegetable seeds. With operations in more than 30 countries, we are an internationally oriented family business. Our 1,900 employees are dedicated to developing the best vegetable varieties for the present and the future.
We’ve expanded over the years in an organic, ongoing process, shaped by interaction between growers, dealers, supply chain partners and our own employees. All our partners have the freedom, within their own local market, to get the most out of our products.
Together for the long term
We build long-term relationships with our customers rather than going for quick wins. Our representatives are in close communication with growers, exchanging views and listening to their concerns. By keeping our ear to the ground, we can provide better support and advice for real and lasting crop results.
We learn every day from experience. We want to know what is happening on the field and in the market. We use this practical knowledge to develop new varieties and produce seeds with better characteristics for growers and the chain.
Raising the bar with innovations
We invest considerably in research and development. Just as we were ahead in the 1960s in applying modern breeding techniques, we never stop actively exploring new technologies. The more we learn about plants, right down to the DNA level, the more able we are to develop new varieties faster and more accurately than ever.
This means varieties and seeds with even better growth characteristics that are well suited to sustainable farming. And it results in crops that meet growers’ needs and vegetables that appeal to consumers.
Harvesting now and 50 years from now
As the world population increases and more mouths need to be fed, there is a steadily growing need for good, healthy food. We contribute with our expertise and by further improving our breeding methods.
We stay close to nature. We feel that the world’s scarce natural resources deserve protection, so that growers can harvest from healthy, fertile soil, now and in 50 years’ time. That’s why we are always looking for new, more sustainable farming methods and why we invest in a broad range of organic vegetable seeds.
Quality: the best seeds and the best varieties
We look with confidence to the future. As a family business, we continue to do what we have always done: produce the best seeds and create the best varieties for healthy, flavourful, sustainably grown vegetables.
Working together with growers and partners in the supply chain to give good initiatives room to grow: that’s our passion. Exploring nature never stops.
