HRB is a biotech company with its roots in New York and incorporated in the Netherlands. Our mission is to improve crops relevant for agri- and horticulture through applying the latest innovations in plant genetics. HBR maintains an active R&D pipeline and continuously seeks to expand IP portfolio of plants with innovative traits, while also offering plant genetics services to industry clients.  

Our plant genetics service focuses on tailoring our clients’ crops to their specific needs, for example to increase yields, resistance or other specific traits.

Our R&D revolves around “plants as factories” for high-value compounds for the nutritional, pharma and cosmetics industries. HRB develops these innovations independently, and in collaboration with some of the world’s leading research institutes, including Wageningen University.

The HRB team has a strong background in business and biology. HRB is supported by an advisory board that includes scientists from Wageningen University and people from relevant business fields.
