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. We offer plant genetics services, and maintain an active R&D pipeline to continuously expand our own IP portfolio.

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 industres. HRB develops these innovations independently, and in collaboration with some of the world’s leading research institutes, including Wageningen University.
