Africa: creation of a joint venture in South Africa dedicated to field seeds
Vilmorin & Cie announces the creation of a joint venture in South Africa dedicated to field seeds, particularly corn. Operational as of July 2020, this structure groups together all the field seeds activities in South Africa of the companies Vilmorin & Cie, Klein Karoo Seed Marketing and Seed Co. Called Limagrain Zaad South Africa, it is controlled by Vilmorin & Cie. This joint venture constitutes a major player in South Africa, proposing a specific multi-crop approach and benefiting from critical mass in an already highly consolidated field seed market. The joint venture stands out on the market by offering a wide product range, including soybean, sunflower, wheat, sorghum and forage, as a complement to corn.
