East-West Seed Foundation Philippines

For the last three decades, East-West Seed Philippines has remained true to its mission of providing innovative products and services that help increase the income of farmers. It has empowered farmers by equipping them with the right tools: good seeds and greater knowledge.

Through the East-West Seed Foundation, East-West Seed Philippines builds on its role as the farmer’s champion, to become a builder of communities.

The East-West Seed Foundation, Inc. (EWSF) was organized and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a non-stock, non-profit organization in July 2012. EWSF is envisioned as the corporate social responsibility arm of East-West Seed Philippines (EWPH). The Foundation is governed by a seven-man Board of Trustees composed of competent and highly-regarded individuals from the public and private sector.
