Every year we invest a large part of our turnover in research & development. Eminent Seeds has grown into a high-end breeding company that uses the most modern breeding techniques, and does not use any GMO techniques. By making crosses with our versatile parent lines, we develop varieties that meet the requirements of the future. Requirements in the field of production, shelf life, taste and resistances.
Thanks to our roots in vegetable cultivation, we know exactly what growers and specialty customers find important. As part of Best Fresh, we also have access to current market and consumer information. This provides important insights that give direction to our innovations. Many of our seeds are first extensively tested by our sister company Eminent Produce, before being produced. Eminent Food sells a large part of these products on the market.
The innovative power of nature
Nature provides everything we need. We therefore do not use biotechnology in the development of our varieties. We prefer to apply traditional breeding techniques to arrive at new and improved varieties. By crossing our diverse and versatile parent lines, we develop varieties that meet the demands of the future. Requirements in the field of production, shelf life, taste and resistances.
Markers accelerate innovation
We use and develop molecular markers ourselves. With the help of markers we can accelerate the development of new varieties enormously. Selecting suitable varieties (for example for the presence of resistances or plant characteristics) is much more efficient this way. This allows us to process new and sometimes necessary wishes from growers more quickly in our varieties.
Quality is our first priority
The quality of the varieties is important to us. It is extremely important for growers that our seeds meet the highest quality requirements. That is why we meet the highest quality requirements and we are constantly looking to improve our processes. We can promise that here, but it says much more that our seeds are produced under the strict standards of GSPP and supervision of Naktuinbouw.
