Organic right from the start – From breeding to the end product.

What is organic breeding?

Using methods and techniques that are compatible with the principles of organic farming, organic breeding develops varieties that meet the needs of organic farming.

Breeding takes place with respect for the integrity of the plant – there is no intervention below the cell level (genetic engineering). All the work steps, from the first to the last, take place on organic farms.

  • Market partnership with Gut WulfsdorfMarket partnership with Gut Wulfsdorf
    In September 2021, bioverita started a collaboration with Gut Wulfsdorf, a Demeter farm in Ahrensburg near Hamburg. The company has always attached great importance to open pollinated varieties.

bioverita sees itself as a counterbalance to genetic engineering and the consolidation in the seed industry with fewer and fewer suppliers. The range of organic varieties for organic farming must therefore be increased.

bioverita is always about organic breeding – whether that is vegetables, cereals or coming soon, apples!

In 2021 leading representatives of the organic industry congratulated bioverita on the 10th anniversary

Alexander Gerber Board member Demeter e.V.

Thanks to bioverita, everyone, from wholesalers to retailers to organic customers, can help ensure that more and more pure lines varieties that are suitable for organic cultivation become available. With this work bioverita is doing an invaluable service and Demeter sincerely wishes you all the best in the coming decades.”
