De opdrachtgever

Pop Vriend Seeds is a specialized seed breeding company in the Netherlands. Which exports vegetable seeds to more than 100 countries worldwide, including the United States, China and Africa. It is headquartered in Andijk, in the heart of Seed Valley.

In 2019, Pop Vriend Seeds joined forces with KWS Seeds of Einbeck, Germany. KWS is one of the world's largest independent seed companies with an impressive track record of quality breeding and continuous technical innovation. Moreover, KWS also has family roots, just like Pop Vriend Seeds. Perhaps that's why the feeling was right away and they share many values, such as having a long-term perspective.
