The core business of Seed Co is the production and marketing of certified hybrid seeds. The Company’s seed products are the end result of long-term scientific breeding programmes. They are designed to add real and consistent value to every farming operation, giving farmers the opportunity to have food surplus year in and year out resulting in a good standard of living. Seed Co’s hybrid seeds bring with them appropriate immunity, resistance or tolerance to diseases and reliable high yield performance. In 2015 a French company, Limagrain, one of the leading cereal and vegetable seed companies in the world, bought a stake in Seed Co.
Seed Co has managed to grow its continental footprint in its market segment across Africa, leveraging the power of the “Seed Co” brand equity and superior seed products which are adaptable to multi-geographical settings. The Company, in partnership with Limagrain’s affiliate, HM. Clause, has ventured into the breeding and distribution of vegetable seed business on the African continent under the Primeseedco brand. Seed Co runs the largest single out grower scheme in the seed business and has the most extensive network of farmers, infrastructure, resources, geographical reach and know-how.
