Who we are

Breeding Accel is a collaboration between 6 breeding companies.

Breeding Accel is a breeding platform founded by breeder companies 

This cooperation consists of: KP Holland, Interplant Roses, Schoneveld Breeding, Sion Young Plants, Fresh Forward and Royal Van Zanten. These companies are establishing Breeding Accel, an innovative knowledge platform that unites the expertise and research capacity of the individual companies. Its objective is to shorten the time to market, invest jointly in the latest breeding technologies, and exchange knowledge. Since none of these companies competes with each other with regard to their genetics, this maximises transparency and collaboration.

Naturally, our customers - the growers - will also benefit from this collaboration: starting material of even higher quality as well as a shorter breeding cycle providing quicker access to new genetics.

We are committed to accelerating the time to market. The use of the latest technologies will also make it easier to realize products displaying truly distinctive characteristics.

Molecular department

In 2021, Breeding Accel set up a molecular laboratory where the partners use the facilities, conduct joint research and develop knowledge. This laboratory is located in company building PlantXperience in Wilp.

Funding/in collaboration with:
