Seed selection is the key in order to create quality product. We procure the special GMO-free (Genetically Modified Organisms FREE) hybrid seeds from the United States.
The latitude of 46° N, where our producing areas are located, belongs to the so-called „corn belt” in Hungary. It means that here are the most favourable climatic and loam conditions for popcorn maize cultivation. For the production we have hundreds of hectares of family-owned high-quality arable land, and we have been integrating farmers for many years, so our production capacity can be further expanded. Most of the lands are irrigated, so they are not subject to weather conditions.
