KWS

Our mission statement:

KWS is the independent seed specialist for farmers in the 21st century.
Development with a distinctive image: Principles of KWS
We are an independent seed company with a long tradition, and we put our principles to use in our everyday work. They stand for future orientation and responsibility.
We create the foundation for farmers’ success.
For more than 150 years, we have made a major contribution to farmers’ success by supplying them with high-quality seed for healthy, high-yielding varieties. We see ourselves as a partner of our customers. Expert and constant advice on the spot and a spirit of trust and openness are the hallmark of our business relationships.
We improve seed.
The goal of our work is to achieve breeding progress – to keep on improving the performance of our varieties and the technical quality of our seed. We measure our work by how it meets the needs of farmers and society.
We pursue innovative goals and work transparently.
Modern plant breeding is cutting-edge technology. Every year, we invest far more than the industry average in our core competencies of breeding and research in order to develop new varieties and products faster. Our activities are geared to ensure the sparing use of natural resources and the transparent, open communication of our activities to all interested.
We act independently, in a spirit of partnership and with our sights on profitability.
Cooperating with reliable partners worldwide is just as important to us as our independence and not being shackled by one-sided interests. Our culture of partnership is founded on trust, cooperation and mutual respect at all levels of the relationship. We secure our profitability by thinking long term and using our own initiative.
We like working for KWS.
Our employees’ ideas and achievements are what make KWS strong and successful. Personal initiative and independence are second nature to us, as are a sense of responsibility and tolerance.
Responsibility to humankind and nature.
The guiding principle and measure of our daily work is responsibility toward humankind and nature. That is why KWS continuously invests in measures to promote key aspects of sustainable economic activity. That includes responsible production, compliance with environmental guidelines and a commitment to social concerns inside and outside KWS.
