Hazera’s leek, bred to perform


Hazera’s leek portfolio is created by years of intensive breeding research combined with adequate development activities. By communicating with the industry and our customers, we try to deliver the best product for everyone’s needs. By the acquisition of an entire commercial and breeding leek programme we have made an important step to be prepared for the future.
