Rijk Zwaan opens south China base

Vegetable breeder Rijk Zwaan opened a second breeding station in China last month, at Guilin in the south of the country.

The Dutch company has been active in the Chinese vegetable market for 15 years and already established a head office and breeding station in Qingdao on the east coast.

Rijk Zwaan managing director Marco van Leeuwen said: "The southern part of China plays an important role in our expansion strategy and in Guilin we can develop and test varieties specifically for this region."
