We don’t only do this from the perspective of our own economic interests and to ensure healthy operations, but also because we are convinced that the potato is a fantastic and important crop. It offers huge nutritional value and its cultivation requires relatively low water consumption. Potatoes are easy to grow, even for the small home-grower. This includes a huge number of individuals across the globe. Giving them access to better potato varieties can significantly improve production. This, in turn, contributes towards reducing food shortages and hunger.
Our company has a mission: HZPC stimulates the development of responsible food for the global population. Together with our growers, producers and consumers, we are committed to improving research and the cultivation and usage of potatoes all around the world. That is why we continuously work on the development of efficient varieties that are adapted to different uses, climates and growing conditions.
Potatoes can cope with and thrive in almost any soil and under any climatic conditions. HZPC is convinced that potatoes can offer a significant contribution towards feeding the world’s growing population.
