Collaboration with Food Bank
HZPC started a collaborative effort with Voedselbank Noord-Oost Nederland (food bank in the north-eastern part of the Netherlands). We deliver 18,000 kg of potatoes per year for food hampers.
Collaboration with CIP and benefit sharing in Peru
In line with the objective of working responsibly with genetic material, we are in Peru, where we set out to work on the start of a practical and small-scale benefit sharing initiative, under the guidance of the International Potato Center (CIP), with and for so-called custodian farmers in the Andes.
The number of HZPC growers participating in the sustainability programme of Stichting Veldleeuwerik has grown from 6 growers to 53.
