Royal Dutch Barenbrug continually invests in research and marketing. The ongoing introduction of new products reinforces the company's position as an innovative market leader. After 100 years, grass seed still accounts for 80% of the annual turnover. However, what has changed significantly is the quality of the varieties and quantities sold. Whereas it used to trade in bulk stocks, the company now has a wide range of specialised products. The Barenbrug Group, with production facilities in about 20 countries and sales in more than 90 countries, is the second largest supplier of grass seed in the world. Union Forage distributes Barenbrug products in eastern BC and the Canadian Prairies.
