Why value-chain partnerships

Organic breeding provides benefits to the organic sector

What distinguishes value-chain partnerships? 

  • joint provision of sustainably produced food for the mutual benefit of all stakeholders
  • close cooperation between actors, based on partnership
  • orientation towards quality and transparency for the consumers

Why should organic breeding matter to value-chain actors? 

  • current cultivars and animal breeds are not adjusted to organic production and processing
  • novel breeding technologies are diverging from organic principles
  • investment for the future: what is bred today will be on our plates in 10-15 years 
  • necessary for self-determined and independent further development of the organic sector
