Anton played “a musical ode to cooperation in the seed sector” at the welcome party of the ISF Congress in Rotterdam.

After a day full of work, sessions and presentations, it was time for music at the ISF Congress in Rotterdam. And on stage was Anton van Doornmalen, co-owner and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Rijk Zwaan.

The performance was received with enthusiasm by his colleagues in the sector. Especially from the other family seed companies East-West Seeds, Takii Seeds and Sakata, to whom he dedicated a song. The performance was a wonderful end to an inspiring day!

Anton has worked in the seed industry for over 50 years. For him, collaboration within the world seed industry is central. As a result, many competitors have become friends. His musical performance was a symbol of the strong ties within the sector.
