Strategic shareholders

Our strategic shareholders 

KeyGene was founded in 1989 by a number of Dutch seed companies. Their goal was and is to create synergy and higher efficiency in their molecular genetic research programs and thus improve their breeding efforts. At the time of its foundation KeyGene employed three people. Since then KeyGene has grown continuously and several times it has had to expand its facilities considerably. Today, KeyGene has four strategic shareholders active in the field of vegetable breeding:
