我們的歷史 / Our History
高華公司創辦人謝先生為一名出色園藝家， 為著其濃厚興趣， 收購了公司現址作為興趣用途。 其後， 謝先生為了獲取高品質蔬菜及花卉種子， 率先從西方國家引進種子，在新圍村試種不同的西菜，例如西生菜、西蘭花、西芹等。隨後更從自用性質， 發展為零售及批發本地市場。 直至五十、六十年代， 種子商貿發展迅速，而本公司品牌在當時一直標誌著高質素種子。 同期，本公司與國際上主要幾家種子公司亦開始建立商伴關係。
1967年，謝先生派送其兒子謝天佑Anthony Tse 到美國加洲大學攻讀園藝。1975年，Anthony Tse取得植物生理學博士榮銜回港，並接管本公司。謝博士憑著其專業智識以及濃厚興趣，致力發展本土種子業務， 另一方面發展國際種子貿易，而八十年代中更負責幾家國際種子公司在中國的生產線。現在高華種子致力培育及開發新品種，未來高華高質素產品會不斷推出市場，為種子業界服務。

OUR HISTORY AND VISION
Mr. Andrew Tse, the founder, established the company in 1929. He was an excellent gardener, in order to pursue his interests in gardening, he purchased a piece of land in Shouson Hill and started to grow vegetables and flowers on his farm. In addition to obtaining seeds from the local market, he also spent his days collecting better quality, and different varieties of seeds from other countries. As one of the first persons who introduced high quality seeds from western countries, Andrew started to expand his interests from personal hobby to develop seed retail and wholesale business to the local market. During the time in 1950s and 1960s, seed trading flourished rapidly in Hong Kong, our brand became well known at the local market and served as the market leader on high quality flower seeds. Meanwhile, the company also began to establish relationships with the major international seed breeding companies in Japan, the US and Europe.
In 1967, Andrew Tse sent his son, Anthony Tse, to the University of California at Davis to study Horticulture. Anthony Tse returned in 1975 with a doctorate in Plant Physiology and joined the company. He continued to develop the seed business, in addition to the trading business on importing and exporting, contract production of hybrid seeds in China was started in mid-1980s for foreign companies. We also started to develop our own products. The Seed Production Department was established in 1986 to provide contract production of vegetable and flower seeds for overseas companies in China. In 2019, we will be celebrating 90 successful years of doing trade in the global seed industry. We are fortunate to have flourished over these years, and it is all due to our employees, customers, business partners, and most importantly, farmers. We appreciate the trust that you have put in us, and we hope that the seeds and services we provide have been fruitful for all. We hope to have a long future and successful future ahead of us.
