HZPC one of the first in Europe started the breeding program developing new varieties to meet the demands of the clients. HZPC is concentrating on traditional breeding and doesn’t use GMO technologies. 

Our clients all have their specific wishes and moreover all grow their potatoes in different climates. New varieties are therefore tested on a large number of trial fields around the world. In addition to the advanced laboratory and modern greenhouse complex in the Netherlands (Metslawier) we have 32 trial fields in 10 different climate zones which allow us to forecast the performance of the varieties at any conditions. In that way HZPC has the opprotunity to offer the most suitable potato varieties for every farmer.
