On 12 November, Enza Zaden opened a commercial office and seed storage building in Manila, the Philippines. With this office, the international vegetable breeding company has 47 subsidiaries throughout the world.
Establishing a new office and having a dedicated team in the Philippines will help to identify the needs of the local growers and the local market. This enables the independent family company to develop the best high performing varieties, totally attuned to the local (climate) conditions.
The company's aim is to support local growers in the Philippines in utilizing the full potential of their land and labour. And by doing so, to ensure and increase the grower’s income and to realize food security and safety.
