Why Rijk Zwaan?

Rijk Zwaan is one of the top four vegetable seed breeding companies in the world. Our success is thanks to passionate and innovative staff who are committed to sharing a healthy future by producing top quality seeds for commercial growers and increasing vegetable consumption. Across 25 vegetable crops, we have 1,500+ varieties in our assortment and sell seeds in more than 100 countries.

We are dedicated to each local market we service and consequently have representatives throughout Australia. We make important contributions to improving the sustainability of vegetable production, such as selecting local varieties with specific resistances to diseases or natural traits that help food stay fresher for longer, improving yields and reliability, and developing varieties that meet external demands for convenience foods, and organic and hydroponic production.

While our varieties are selected for their favourable traits in Australian conditions, our people are chosen for their expertise and commitment to advancing our culture. Our people are motivated, flexible and entrepreneurial.
