Our Partners

Aardevo is a Joint Venture between two companies: KWS and The J.R. Simplot Company. In 2019 these two companies joined forces to create Aardevo, which combines KWS’ expertise in seeds and hybrid plant breeding with the advanced potato processing capabilities and agronomic knowledge of Simplot. This union brings together all that is needed for the development of a new potato variety under one roof.
