Our purpose is to make people, partnerships and crops flourish
Hazera has headquarters in both the Netherlands and Israel. We operate subsidiaries in 11 countries, together with a distribution network serving over 130 markets. Our partners operate in all kinds of climates, and under diverse growing conditions and market requirements.
For over a century, our top priority has been walking alongside our partners, developing a wide range of seed varieties and providing comprehensive support every step of the way. Hazera’s team of experts works directly with growers to evaluate their needs, assist during variety selection and provide guidance and support throughout the crop cycle.
Over a hundred years ago, Jan Broersen began selling cabbage seeds to local growers in Tuitjenhorn, the Netherlands. In 1939 Hazera Israel was founded – bringing life to Israeli agriculture.
Today, we work together as One Hazera, drawing from over a century of experience and working directly with growers to deliver seed solutions to all our partners. Our tasty, nourishing fruit and vegetables are loved by communities around the world.
Through our extensive R&D programs, we set out to improve yield, quality, resistance to diseases, with each new variety delivering added benefit and profit to our customers. We value our partnership with leading institutions and apply cutting-edge science when developing solutions our customers have come to trust and rely on.
Over the years, and thanks to our strong bond with our partners, we’ve developed successful seed varieties that respond to market needs. Read more about our staple, break-through variety milestones along the years.
