Produce Businesses

Global Plant Genetics offers produce companies two opportunities


Increasingly so as Produce Companies you need to have your own points of difference in the supply chain. While everyone strives to have improved service, better systems and excel in customer care it is generally new varieties that propel you to the forefront and allow you to increase market share.

Global Plant Genetics represents world class breeders of Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, asparagus and grape roots stocks. It is through the representation of these breeders that we can offer you a solution to your individual requirements.

If your company is looking for its own point of difference in the market place and you have a desire to offer your growers, customers and ultimately the consumer an improved experience by purchasing your products then we should be in contact.

Our technical team are available to help you get the best from your trials and then ultimately large scale field production.

Intellectual Property

Our intellectual property offer works in many different ways depending often on whether you are looking at early stage selections, close to market varieties or maybe something exclusive for a certain territory.

Intellectual Property for Commercial Growers

The benefits to you of working with Global Plant Genetics is not only our world class portfolio of berries, asparagus and grape rootstocks but the experience we have as team in understanding your market requirements.
