Facing the challenges

The world population will continue to grow rapidly in the coming years and will exceed the 9 billion mark by the year 2030. It is a great challenge to be able to provide all these people with healthy and safe food in the future.

In our view, the present production systems are coming to an end. This is why we have to go back to the basic principles and exercise respect for the natural ecosystems. Koppert is continually looking for the answers that are locked in nature itself to then make them applicable for sustainable and productive agriculture and horticulture. It’s the only responsible way in which to pass on the earth to future generations.
