Risk Management

Doing business inherently involves taking risks. By taking balanced risks we strive to continuously build on being a financially sound and sustainable company. Risk management is therefore an important element of our corporate governance and strategy development.

HZPC's business is focused on developing potato varieties, selling potatoes, and developing potato concepts and potato knowledge. We always seek to take initiatives that will increase awareness of business risks and internal control. At the same time, we have to be willing to take risks while focusing on providing transparency in our operations.
