Aardevo intends to change the future of the potato by bringing new potato varieties to market, through the hybrid breeding of diploid potatoes. With a team of specialist researchers from across the globe, each new day at Aardevo comes with renewed motivation to optimise this process.
Despite the company’s clear commercial goal, the current emphasis is primarily on research and development. Aardevo is convinced that innovation is the key to future-proofing all crops, including potatoes. Our innovative approach to breeding ultimately ensures that new potatoes will be market ready much sooner than current standard practice allows. They are stronger, better, and more resistant to disease than current varieties.
Aardevo is made up of 20 passionate scientists, all working towards the same goal. This may not seem like much for revolutionising the world of the potato, but they are not alone. Aardevo is a Joint Venture between two large entities: KWS and Simplot. Two giants of the agriculture and food industries have come together in their joint vision of the potato of the future. Their knowledge, expertise and facilities are all perfectly placed to support the search for the perfect potato.
