The objective of Vitalis is to produce organically grown seeds from reliable varieties which meet consumer demands as well as the special characteristic that organic farmers require. In order to achieve this objective, Vitalis breeds and selects an increasing number of varieties in organic trials all over Europe, and South Pacific Seeds in turn selects the varieties which are suited to the New Zealand growing conditions.
