Seeding the future - since 1856
On April 1st, 2011 KWS formed a 100 % subsidiary named KWS POTATO B.V. as a Dutch company and relocated the headquarters from Poeldijk to Emmeloord, the Netherlands. Emmeloord has already been the existing breeding center of Van Rijn - KWS .
KWS will use its global network of research and breeding stations, its close connection to farmers and international sales force to intensify the potato activities within the next years.
