Benary Opens New Production Facility in Chile

At the beginning of November 2018, Benary opened its new production site in Hijuelas, Chile. 

Hijuelas offers the perfect climate for the production of some of the breeding company’s most important crops. Benary has been producing flower seeds in Chile for decades. 

Celebrating the opening of Benary’s new facility in Chile.

The new site comprises approximately 5 hectares of land with 3 hectares of production area and 10,000 mof greenhouse area. Approx. 1,100 m2 will be used for seed cleaning, the warehouse, dispatch and office space.

Both F1 hybrids and OP seeds are being produced in Hijuelas.

The new production facilities enable Benary to improve its collaboration with partner companies, to produce critical cultures on its own and to carry out various post-harvest processes independently.

The new facility has been built to strict environmental standards, further underlining Benary’s claim to maximum sustainability.

Hijuelas is located in the middle of a popular horticultural region — about 100 km north of Santiago and about 1.5 hours drive from Santiago airport.
