Press release by Advanta Seeds
Advanta Seeds, the UPL seed company, puts its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into action. The company promotes sustainable agriculture and focuses on delivering high-quality seeds and new technologies to support food production while facing climate change and fast population growth.
“Hunger is a daily reality for almost one billion people. The global population expects to grow by a further two billion people, precisely in those geographies where there is already food shortage as the UN reports. Advanta Seeds is focusing on farmers who need the most support to grow more nutritional food. This focus is on countries where a majority are smallholder farmers. Supporting smallholders with quality seeds is crucial for global food security,” shared Bhupen, Global CEO of Advanta Seeds.
Access to Seeds Index 2019 ranked Advanta Seeds as No. 4 in South and Southeast Asia and No. 5 in the world for contributing to UN Sustainable Development Goals by providing access to quality seeds and enhancing smallholder farmers’ productivity. This inspired the company to embed sustainability into Advanta’s DNA and to empower its employees to drive meaningful contributions to sustainability.
