Hazera Seeds UK Ltd
Hazera Seeds UK Ltd is a fully owned subsidiary of Hazera Seeds Ltd. Hazera in the UK is a research trials, marketing, sales and distribution company responsible for promoting vegetable varieties from the Limagrain breeding companies around the world.
Operating with two dedicated sales and development teams, we distribute Hazera and Vilmorin products and, through Clause UK, the products of Clause and Harris Moran.
The company’s headquarters are located at Rothwell, Lincolnshire. The site is shared with our sister company, Limagrain UK Ltd, who breed and distribute varieties of agricultural seeds and food ingredients.
Our teams of product development and sales personnel are based around the country and conduct detailed trials of new varieties, and promote the range to professional growers. High investment in breeding and research within the Limagrain group enables us to generate new genetics specifically tailored for the UK vegetable market, ensuring that new products are fully tested under local conditions before commercial release.
Customers include commercial growers, plant raisers and packet-seed companies.
Our strongest products include field brassicas including white, green, red, savoy and pointed cabbages and spring greens, summer, autumn and winter cauliflowers and brussels sprouts. We also have a development programme for broccoli, which is currently undergoing UK evaluation. Other major strengths can be found in field salads including lettuce, radish, celery and bunched onions, and rooted crops such as carrot, bulb onion, leeks, red beet, parsnip and more recently asparagus.
We are always looking for new genetics that will improve product quality for the consumer and agronomic characteristics for the grower.
