Great first “Radish Challenge 2020” with German, Austrian and Swiss customers in the USA and Mexico from 19th until 25th of January 2020.
During the five days of this exclusive study tour we offered our guests an intense, fun and interesting program. Some of the largest produce companies in two major agricultural states of the USA, California and Arizona were visited and the group also crossed the border to Mexico to visit radish growers there.
California is the most important vegetable production state in the USA and is producing more than half of the nations’ fresh fruits. This trip has given an insight in this market and in the way how environmental factors as droughts, wildfires and mudslides are handled.
Aim of our study tours is that sharing knowledge between companies worldwide will result in network, innovation, creativity and business opportunities.
Hazera was a participant as well as sponsor of the 10th Israeli Agriculture Conference, held by the Mashov Group at the Crowne Plaza Jerusalem on December 17-18, 2019.
The conference was hosted by the well-known television news personality (commercial channel 12) – Danny Cushmaro
Hazera was pleased to host, on the 18-19 of December, the annual Limagrain Group Safety Directors Seminar. This is the first time such a seminar was held outside the Limagrain’s home country – France.
The safety directors from all Limagrain sites around the world arrived in Israel to attend the annual seminar, and took the opportunity to take a closer look at Hazera’s advanced safety practices.
The seminar included professional lectures and presentations in the field of safety, including safety management, risk management, reporting procedures, regulations, safety reviews and audits, and more.
On the first day of the seminar, guests visited Hazera’s plant in Sderot and were impressed by the rigorous work processes implemented at the plant. During the day, guided tours of the various departments were held for the directors, enabling them to observe the company’s safety activities and developments. Continue reading
Nicolas Tinel embodies Hazera’s modesty and ambition.
With his appointment as Hazera’s new CEO, Nicolas Tinel is ‘the right man for the job’ because of his twenty years of experience at Limagrain, one of the largest seed companies in the world.
Nicolas will take time to visit all the divisions and listen to what people have to say. “For the time being, my main task will be to improve all lines of communication within the company; ‘connecting the dots’.” Also, in line with his modesty, he has great respect for what his predecessors have achieved.
Close to Customers
This approach to his new job matches Hazera’s focus on knowing and understanding their customers’ needs. “Which is quite a challenge because our work involves living nature, and the world is constantly changing. But, thanks to Hazera’s headquarters being situated in Israel and The Netherlands, as well as subsidiaries in twelve countries and an extensive distribution network, we are always close to our customers. At the same time, we benefit as part of the Limagrain Group, an international agri-business based in France. Being a farmers’ cooperative, the Limagrain Group understands the needs of its customers and has grown to become the largest vegetable group company in the world.”
Nicolas Tinel has been working for parent company Limagrain for over twenty years. After his appointment at Limagrain in 1999, he was on the cusp of a special kind of world tour. As a sales manager, he lived and worked in five different countries including India and the United States. In this way, he gained a lot of knowledge about the various products and their areas of production. Nicolas knows the seed industry’s DNA and understands what its customers want.
Nicolas has high ambitions. “I want Hazera to continue to grow. Not only in volume, but also by making an even greater difference in quality. Taste is very important to this. Furthermore, I aim to make our products as attractive as possible for both farmers and consumers. For instance, by improving our products’ resistance to diseases and climate changes, and by higher yields and better storage. And, of course, we will look at ways to reduce environmental burdens and, thereby, costs.”
Hazera wishes you happy holidays and a very happy and healthy 2020!
