Dutch seed breeder enters market

Development and marketing seed company Ikasido Global Group has set up to supply the market with genetic materials of plant crops.

The new international R&D seed company with headquarters in Westland, the Netherlands is led by Peter van Zeijl, previously the managing director of Sakata Holland, who has 20 years of experience in the international seed business.

The main goal of Ikasido Global Group is to form a network of independent breeders and breeding companies throughout the world to provide them with a platform for marketing and distribution of their genetics. This way Ikasido Global Group will offer genetics of flowers, vegetables and bedding plants for open-field and greenhouse cultures.

Ikasido Global Group has recently gained the global distribution rights of Kitano Seeds.

Ikasido Global Group has also recently taken on a major share in the business activities of BSD Ukraine, a seed distributor that specializes in flower and vegetable seeds in Ukraine.
