The company Vitaseed, based in Gwatt/ Thun (Switzerland) was founded in December 2006 by the Innosuisse Group of Companies. In December of 2007, the swiss entrepreneur Reto Hartmann took over 100% of the shares and the patents of Vitaseed AG and leads the company since then. On 7 December 2007, Reto Hartmanns Anker Group AG in Baar took over the 100% shares of Vitaseed AG. After this change of ownership, it was about to professionalize the processes and operational procedures and to create a sound financial footing.
An important extension of the business sector in the agriculture sector with the product line “Vitaseed Aqua” started in 2010 and 2011. In early 2012, Reto Hartmann sold 50% of his shares to his business partner Jochen Schaefer, to jointly develop with him the Vitaseed Group.
