Genetic Resources are the building blocks of life. They can be defined as living material that includes genes of present and potential value for humans. Genetic diversity is key to sustainability: without genetic variation we cannot meet present demands or improve our stocks for future needs. By safeguarding and promoting genetic diversity through new and novel molecular techniques and sophisticated breeding programs, and contributing to preserving the global gene pool, Hendrix Genetics nurtures its Genetic Resources to ensure that they contribute to global food security.
To fulfill our mission and to realize our full potential, Hendrix Genetics is inspired to be the global leader in animal breeding. With this goal in mind, we have developed a strategy founded on strengthening four key pillars of our business:
Over many years, we have accumulated expertise and resources and leveraged our roots in farming to develop the relevant, high quality multi-species breeding solutions that we offer today.
