Who we are

Growing together

Together with our partners, we’ve embarked on a journey toward a more successful future. We do things the right way so that crops and communities can grow together. Our mission making people, partnerships and fruit and vegetables flourish. One way we make this happen is through dedicated support and expertise backed by over a hundred years of experience. This forms the foundation on which all our partnerships thrive.

Because our organization represents a truly global community of employees and stakeholders, we know we can impact the present and the future of many other, more local communities. We take our responsibility seriously, and we’re ambitious about the impact we aim to create. We know every seed, person and partnership counts.

Our History
We’re a global organization committed to developing high-quality seeds that allow communities to flourish. Over a hundred years ago, Jan Broersen began selling cabbage seeds to local growers in Tuitjenhorn, the Netherlands. Through the years, his company joined forces with another called Seedfarm Zwaan. And then another: a cooperative called Hazera Israel, established in 1939 in the kibbutz tradition – bringing life to Israeli agriculture for generations.

Today, we work together as 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.

Working side by side with partners
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 them, developing an enormous variety of seeds 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.

A century of innovation
We also work to inspire the global agricultural community through dedicated research. And we partner with leading institutions to apply cutting-edge science when developing solutions our customers have come to trust and rely on.
