International Fruit Genetics

Premium Fruit Varieties for a Global Market

International Fruit Genetics (IFG) is one of the world's largest fruit-breeding operations. The company combines cutting-edge scientific techniques with proven business acumen and a world-wide patent protection program. In simple terms, we find an existing need in the market, we create a variety designed to fill that need, and then we license that variety to a limited number of growers and marketers to ensure quality and supply meets market demands. For our licensees, this unique approach results in high quality fruit with a high demand and superior profit margins.
