2020 RECEIVER

A new dimension for GRAINES VOLTZ in the service of market gardening

On 1 June 2020, VOLTZ SEEDS took over the activities of the German company HILD Samen, a subsidiary of the BASF group. HILD is a specialist in aromatics and red radish. HILD & VOLTZ SEEDS have a long history together. HILD has always supplied the family with vegetable seeds, becoming the first and most important supplier of VOLTZ SEEDS when it was founded in 1985. With this acquisition, our offer has been enriched with new genetics. But above all, GRAINES VOLTZ has added a major string to its bow: the status of breeder. Now, in addition to our historical activity as distributor and developer, we are able to directly direct breeding programmes. In the long term, we will be able to offer our own genetic solutions to better meet our customers' needs.
