A leading global player

SESVanderHave is a leading global player in the sugar beet seed sector. We specialise in every aspect of sugar beet seed production, from the development of new and more resistant varieties right through to the final blue seeds. Since 2005, SESVanderHave has been part of the Florimond Desprez group, a French family-owned business specialising in seeds.

SESVanderHave has its headquarters in the Belgium’s "sugar capital" Tienen, which is also the location of one of the three high-tech factories where our sugar beet seeds are processed. Our other factories are located in Kiev (Ukraine) and Alexeyevka (Russia).

Every year, SESVanderHave sells over one and a half million units of one hundred thousand seeds each.

Worldwide, SESVanderHave sells 360 varieties in more than 50 countries. Each variety is developed for the needs of individual markets all over the world.

Tailor-made solutions

Thanks to our worldwide network of local agents and subsidiaries, SESVanderHave has a presence in every country where sugar beet is grown. “Our local colleagues are not only responsible for sales, but also maintain close contact with the local market, so that they have a thorough knowledge of the needs and expectations of growers. That is a definite advantage," says Bruno Vandamme, Commercial Director at SESVanderHave.

Worldwide there are major differences in climatological conditions, soil quality, and the diseases and pests that threaten the sugar beet. Conditions at any given location can vary from year to year, for example due to climate change or the emergence of new diseases.

SESVanderHave offers varieties for each region that are best suited to the local soil and climate.
