About Limgroup

Our objective and our contribution


  • Our objective is to make a contribution to a good life on earth with our varieties.


  • We believe that knowledge-intensive agriculture and horticulture are crucial for a good life on earth.


  • Our contribution to this is to make the most of the plant's potential. 'Unleashing plant potential', as we call it.
  • We do this by developing pioneering genetics and services, resulting in sustainably produced asparagus and strawberry varieties that are good for growers, consumers and future generations.

"As Limgroup, we have a responsibility to the future. We fulfil this responsibility using our purpose as our guiding principle, spreading our message to the outside world in a positive way." 

Vincent Deenen, CEO Limgroup.
